THE HONOR WORTH PRESERVING
HISTORY RECORDS the sad refrains. Perceived affronts to personal or national honor prompt violent reactions that even the score, but dishonor the perpetrators.
One form of this honor-to-dishonor cycle is the ancient practice of honor killing. And this practice is more common today than one might think. The act of murdering a family member, often a woman thought to have brought shame on the family, is itself shameful. Organizations such as Amnesty International are working to bring this practice to worldwide attention. Many governments condemn it.
