Every Warrior of the Light has felt afraid of going into battle.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at some time in the past, lied or betrayed someone.
Every Warrior of the Light has trodden a path that was not his/hers.
Every Warrior of the Light has suffered for the most trivial of reasons.
Every Warrior of the Light has, at least once, believed s/he was not a Warrior of the Light.
Every Warrior of the Light has failed in his/her spiritual duties.
Every Warrior of the Light has said ‘yes’ when s/he wanted to say ‘no.’
Every Warrior of the Light has hurt someone s/he loved.

That is why s/he is a Warrior of the Light, because s/he has been through all this and yet has never lost hope of being better than s/he is.
