On the Beach


When Socrates refused to take back his ideas and beliefs, his enemies charged him with 399 guilts of corrupting the Athenian youths by turning them against the traditional gods. The charges were baseless but the majority found him guilty and sentenced him to death. Socrates was requested by his followers to escape from the jail, which he could do easily but Socrates refused to do so. For the sake of his ideas and beliefs, he gladly embraced death by drinking the cup of a deadly poison, hemlock.

History offers only a few examples of such glorious death.
