“The warrior is naturally inclined to be courageous, vigorous, have firmness of mind. The warrior is resourceful, generous and displays the qualities of leadership at all times. The warrior is not inclined to flee, but rather to persevere in the midst of the battle.”
The Bhagavad Gita.
There is a warrior within all of us. A warrior that does not despair, one that casts away discouragement and rises like a fire that burns all before it.
We salute the warrior within.
For some - the battlefield has been far away. Others - fought the battle of waiting, wondering and supporting the empty chair, armed with a prayer of a safe return. Still others see the battle lying ahead to serve those that have sacrificed so much for all of us. We salute all of you.
