Warriors are not what you think of
   as Warriors.
The Warrior is not someone who fights
   because no one has the right to take
   another life.
The Warrior for us is the one who
   sacrifices himself for the good of others.
His task is to take care of the elderly,
   the defenseless, those who cannot
   provide for themselves, and above all,
   the children, the future of humanity.
