|| I'm finally getting around to understanding Ryze.
I like the term Better World Builders. I also like Better World Warriors. It is true that war is destructive and is the type of activity we want to avoid rather than remind ourselves of. Nevertheless, the word war and the reality of war is ever present, and we are unlikely to have much impact on the world's psyche by avoiding the words we hear and think about daily.
However, what if we were to affect a paradigm shift?; Redefine "warrior" as someone who actively pursues changes for the better, and willing to boldly fight against the negativity and destructive mentality that guide today's leaders, much of the media, and many of the people in our world today? A warrior fights with deeds that actually help people have a better life. A warrior fights with words that inspire people to do good things.
Just a thought. Not meaning to be contrary.
