“Here Am I, Send Me”
A warrior reflecting on his blade and the hours he has toiled to master it. He has suffered much for the profession of arms and has the callouses, scars, and stories to prove it. As he remembers those who have not been up to the task, who have not had the strength to serve, he counts himself lucky that he has been bestowed with the gifts of strength, discipline and fortitude. Blessed be the Lord my strength who teaches my hands to fight and my fingers to war.
Years later, the same warrior standing ready. He does not look for conflict, but if his country requires it, he wants to be the first in the fray. He states simply: “Here Am I, Send Me”.
