Thought of the day....Honor, family and friends.

Sometimes one must realize life is not about money but about the strength of a persons heart, not about money but strength of family bonds, not about money but about a simple thing as a name.

Many have lost the capacity to understand the meaning of honor or respect, the way it dictates a person's path, a stand against an enemy for the protection and love of family...

To defend the honor of a name is the most honorable of battles, for that battle is only recognized by the individual who fights it, there are no medals, no recognition, no parades.

The defense of one's honor does not depend on others, but yourself; life, freedom and the pursuit of happiness has always depended on the very few who understand that philosophy.

Unfortunately, many have lost this important perspective, failed to appreciate the value, or simply lost their belief in the role model to the young. History, whether personal or civilisation itself has always depended on the understanding, that without honor, without personal respect, there is no future, not for the individual not for society itself.

If you find yourself alone, outnumbered, look at the mirror....
if you are satisfied in what you see, if you did your best, then your battle is won...

Honor can only be upheld by the one, no one will give it to you, it must be earned, most will fail because of their misinterpretation of it's meaning, but the few who succeed, have found the way of the Warrior...

And that is what life is all about....
-------------------------------
Are these words living in the past....Maybe...but then again.
When I look around me, the anger, the rage, the vendetta minded, the revenge seekers, or simply those who pray to the new gods, namely money, material goods, control. I see pain in their eyes, emptiness in their heart, loneliness in their lives and they are always searching for contentment, not knowing it is in front of them. People like that will never understand the value of a friend, someone who will put it all on the line for you or the importance of family, the sacrifice we must do for others.
I have learned a lot these past few years, and especially these past few days, from those who stood by me and those who "tried" to cause me pain for no reason other than money and power. Family used and abused for financial benefit, statistics, and power over other.
It most definitely made me more reclusive, but I am secure in one thing, I know who I am thanks to them, I know who is real family and who is my friend...
They may be few and far between but at least, finally....
I know who is who....
