"Being a warrior isn't about taking lives.
Being a warrior isn't about showing strength.
Being a warrior is not showing how much knowledge you have.
Being a warrior is learning how to cry.
Learning how to cry,
because when a man learns how to cry he is learning understanding.
He is learning how to understand,
because when a man cries then compassion starts to grow.
He is learning compassion.
Being compassionate, loving all children, respecting everybody, protecting your family."
