Warrior in Today’s Society
Jermaine Andre is a professional mixed martial artist, a great warrior and a
righteous man. These are his words.
'To be a warrior in today's society is to be one of the unaccepted and
As a true warrior carries more concern and emotion than the average person,
he must always suppress his feelings so that he will not die from sadness.
This usually leads the judgmental into believing that the warrior is a man
of no heart. A true warrior looks deeply into all things without limiting
his mind inside of the borders of societies restrictions. He makes his
judgments off of what he has learned through experience instead of what he
is told to believe.
A code of honor is always established somewhere within a warrior's life. His
honor is more important to him than life itself. He would rather be dead
with honor than alive without it. Please understand that a warrior's honor
is not to be confused with a fool's ego. A warrior of today must always
keep himself disconnected from the gratifications that society allows.
Material things and money are only that to him. He must always be prepared
to die for what he believes in, so he must never fear leaving things behind.
Warriors believe in standing for what's right and falling for what's right.
They do not sway with the winning side if it is in the wrong. This would be
dishonorable. A warrior knows of things that the domesticated doesn't
because of his courage to seek and find at his own will. This always keeps
him separate from the sheep who follow the manipulating shepherd.

He does not look for his honor through fame or what other people think of
him. Even if the world condemns what he is doing as wrong, he will keep
doing it if he himself feels that it is right. He does not seek the
approval of misled and misguided men. Only the approval of the Spirit that
he has chosen as his leader.
To the warrior, his only fear of death, is to die a cowardly one. To die a
good, warrior's death … is only a blessing from his Superior Spirit.
Death through life is what the warrior will seek … and life through death,
is what he shall find.'
