Being a Warrior: A Round-Table Discussion /Workshop

Being a warrior is not about the military, but we do need to learn from our history books. It is not about security, but we should be ready and know how to protect. It is not about being an Eagle Scout, but we should be able to camp and know our way around in our environment. Being a warrior is about you being the best you. It is about never settling but always striving to improve yourself; mind, body and spirit. Change yourself and you change the world.
