Elder Wisdom

It takes far more courage to take a stand for peace or justice then it does to fight in battles as a warrior. It takes more because you stand alone. Because you stand for those who can't stand or speak for them self. You stand for ideas that are far from what you hear everyday by your peers. You have to walk your talk instead of just mouthing something you don't really believe. You have to expect attacks on you from those you care about the most.
