Reluctant Warrior

(from «link»)

Quote in Context:



I hate war, and I hate having to struggle. I honestly do because I wish I had been born into a world where it was unnecessary. This context of struggle and being a warrior and being a struggler has been forced on me by oppression. Otherwise I would be a sculptor, or a gardener, carpenter – You know, I would be free to be so much more… I guess part of me or a part of who I am, a part of what I do is being a warrior – a reluctant warrior, a reluctant struggler.


But I do it, because I’m committed to life.
