Our Warrior Culture

Not too long ago I read an article about the Los Angeles Police Department suggesting that they lived in a warrior culture. I have at times thought the same thing about our national culture. Often our first response is to fight back, seeing it as the only way to respond. Warriors do not often stop to consider what the conflict is about but are more focused on the best way to fight. Sometimes the outcome of the battle is that we become more bellicose rather than finding any peace. Maybe we need to first consider what we are fighting and how much the enemy lies within our own souls.
