"The state that separates its scholars from its warriors will have its thinking done by cowards and its fighting done by fools."
We enjoy a civilized world of SUVs, friendly drive thrus, shopping malls, and air conditioning. Our kids can be raised in relative safety and we have the freedom to pursue the lives we dare to dream of. Though we live in this civilized world, violence still lurks in its dark corners. The ever present threat of war always looms across our borders. It is because of these realities that the world needs a special type of protector who can thrive in both the civilized world and yet be ready to do great violence against those who would seek to prey on the innocent. We special protectors, we Warrior Poets, are those who safeguard freedom and all those under her wings.
