What the Greatest Warriors Do

“I confess without shame that I am tired and sick of the war.  Its glory is all moonshine.  Even victory the most brilliant is over dead and mangled bodies, the anguish and lamentation of distant families crying out to me for missing sons, husbands and fathers.  It is only those who have never heard a shot, never heard the shrieks and groans of the wounded and lacerated, that clamor for more blood, more vengeance, more desolation.” _William Tecumseh Sherman, Civil War general

The ONE THING for today: The great warriors only call for war as a last resort–when the price for freedom and peace can only be purchased by those willing to lose theirs. Armed with righteousness, they fight to win or die.
