I Am A Warrior
by Jon F. Hooper
I stand with God. I fight not for glory or fame, for they are momentary. I fight for those who canít. I fight for justice. I fight for the oppressed and the down trodden. And if I should lose my life for these just causes, then I have no regrets, for I serve to protect the innocent. It matters not where or when, for evil knows no boundaries. Be it fire, flood, or the threat of tyranny, I will not flee. Justice is my weapon. Faith is my shield. Hope is my armor. Cry not at my passing, for it was my honor to fight for you. Shed not tears of sorrow, but tears of joy, for now, I stand with God.

“Blessed are the peacemakers, for they will be called sons of God.”
Matthew 5:9
