On defining ourselves


The true soldier fights not because he hates what is in front of him, but because he loves what is behind him.”

–  G.K. Chesterton 

Let us not be defined by our enemies but by those we love. There will always be more enemies, more hate, more terror. Instead let us define ourselves by those we protect, by the people we stand for, by all that we love. Let us be willing to stand, willing to fight not out of fear or hate but out of love.
