Recently here in Olympia, Washington a male elementary school teacher saw a woman being abused. He rushed to her defense. He was actually beaten quite badly, but staved off the offender and protected the woman.
Yes, Virginia, there are knights in America.
A great Ansteorrean once told me... if it looks like a knight, behaves like a knight, and has the heart of a knight... it is a knight.
I will always remember the words of that knight, because I am not a heavy fighter and will never wear a white belt. But I truly hope that if I were the one who had seen what was happening, I would have had a knights heart and gone to the womans defense.
your humble servant,

Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them,
but I can look up and see the beauty, believe in them, and try to follow
where they lead.
