Not all situations require everyone to take up the banner. Frankly I don't think there are many people in history who could survive more than one crusade in a lifetime as it is.
Many only need a few people to bear the load, to fight the fight...and their resolve may be stregthened on the knowledge that they have people supporting them...be it publicly, or anonimously. Hopefully they will be able to take a step afterwards and be at least partially content with the respect and gratidude of those they represent...regardless of the actual outcome.
