Living as a True Warrior

President Obama concluded his Nobel Peace Prize acceptance speech with the following words. I share them with you as a clear example of the true deeper meaning behind what being a Warrior really is.

” Somewhere today, in the here and now, in the world as it is, a soldier sees he’s outgunned, but stands firm to keep the peace.
Somewhere today, in this world, a young protestor awaits the brutality of her government, but has the courage to march on.
Somewhere today, a mother facing punishing poverty still takes the time to teach her child, scrapes together what few coins she has to send that child to school — because she believes that a cruel world still has a place for that child’s dreams.

Let us live by their example.”

President Obama, 12/10/2009
