Spend your life surrounded by Warriors

"It is not the critic who counts, not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles or where the doer of deeds could have done better.

The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood, who strives valiantly, who errs and comes up short again and again, because there is no effort without error and short comings, who knows the great devotion, who spends himself in a worthy cause, who at best knows in the end the high achievement of triumph and who at worst, if he fails while daring greatly, knows his place shall never be with those timid and cold souls who know neither victory nor defeat."

Theodore Roosevelt 26th US President

My interpretation -

The point is the struggle of doing what's right, when you don't know what right is. Accomplishing the task when you have no idea what the assignment is. The doing and being concerned - the Warrior is always much more affected than the passive. The warrior cries at loss; loss of life, liberties, battles. The warrior strives to accomplish even in times of inactivity, because a true warrior is ALWAYS in battle even when the battle is contemplation.

I heard an astounding fact the other day - less than 3% of the American public has ever been in the military. Got to thinking about that one and I figured it's got to be about right since there are over 250 million people here. I just returned home from 2 years with the Army. It's curious for me how out of 250 million (1/2 are female?!), I can't find ONE that wants to get in the arena.

There is a very good book I have titled "the Code of the Warrior" that I purchased as a young man, and have read many times. I highly recommend it. I would also add that nobody values peace more than a warrior.
