The 1-in-100 Warrior Award: Gabriel Warrior Poet

27 Apr

“Out of every one hundred men, ten shouldn’t even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back.” ~Heraclitus

Strength. A Warrior is all about showing those who believe they have little of it just how much each one of us potentially has. I believed that I had great strength, but when I met my new beautiful brother Warrior Poet, Gabriel, I realized I hadn’t even scratched the surface. Strength. I think about what Gabriel has endured and that is the only word that comes to mind. Not great strength. Not immense strength. Not any other word that puts a limit on the size of his strength. Gabriel possess limitless strength. And he reminds me that my strength as well is limitless. I learn of what he’s endured, having lost five beloved children, and see the strength, grace and love that he chooses to possess, and I’m reminded of just how limitless my own is.

I believe among most I am a Warrior, but Gabriel makes me feel like merely a fighter as mentioned in the Heraclitus quote. He is a true Warrior, a beacon of light, a reminder of the power of choice, and we are lucky to have him. We are so lucky to have such a beautiful, strong, graceful Warrior to bring us back. Thank you for fighting the battle that you fight every day, my brother, you are a window for all of us to what we could be. Please take a moment to send this incredible Warrior your thoughts, encouragement and love today, the anniversary of the passing of two of his angels:

    Peace & grace my brother
