Defining martyrdom down

Traditional definition of martyrdom:

The suffering of death on account of adherence to a cause and especially to one's religious faith.

Modern definition of martyrdom:

When the youngest of my three children was 7 years old, their mother told me she wanted a divorce. We decided that the welfare of the children was most important, but we didn't want to make martyrs out of ourselves either; that would be not only bad for us but also a poor model for the kids. Fortunately, we had an extra bedroom, so we got the divorce but continued living in the same house.

Does it ever strike you that we've become a bunch of wusses?

Yes, it is tragic that so many children's lives have been ruined by the horrible example their parents have set by their sacrifices...oh, wait...
