    Fighting for Justice

    How do we know who we really are unless we’re tested? Would you fight for what you believe in even if it could lead to your demise?

    As a boy, I had dreamed of being a soldier, but when I grew up and enlisted I found it was not what I had imagined. Where I had envisioned camaraderie, honor, and respect, I found secrets, lies, and backstabbing. I found corruption where there should have been cooperation, and, worst of all, malice where only valor should have thrived. I became caught up in a series of attempts to overthrow the government—and became a target myself because I knew too much.

    Most of all I learned that it is only in humility that we find peace. When we begin to think we are better than another man, that is the point at which our downfall begins.
