THERE WAS A TIME.....
..... When we saw this day arrive and looked upon it with dread, When
talk before the battle was "hoping for a miracle today", but expecting a
loss. There was a time when this day was not looked at with anticipation,
or excitement. It used to be a day when we wished it was tomorrow already
and we hoped for the following battle to be with a more favorable foe who's
army was weak and less skilled ........................
BUT THIS IS NOT THAT TIME !!
Now we look at this day with eagerness, with fire in our hearts and a desire
to not only engage the enemy in battle, but to take the battle to his
ground.. to fight on his terms and his conditions and in front of his people.
We no longer dread this day, but Relish it with excitement and an renewed sense
of immortality. This is not that time when we feared this day, but it is
now a time where we revel in it !
THERE WAS A TIME when we saw an insurmountable wall, WE NOW SEE
an obstacle that needs to be removed. ... THERE WAS A TIME when we
wished for a lighter task, NOW WE WISH FOR A TOUGHER OPPONENT !
We No longer fear this battle, but we enter this battle smelling the
fear in the enemy. A fear we have put there, A fear we have instilled
within them, A FEAR OF US, A FEAR OF LOSS, A FEAR OF BEING LEFT
BEATEN AGAIN, AND A FEAR OF THE REALIZATION THAT THEY ARE NO
LONGER THE HUNTERS BUT OUR PREY !! .... THERE WAS A TIME, BUT
THAT TIME IS NO MORE. WE DON'T FEAR BUT WE ARE FEARED, WE
DON'T WISH FOR EASIER ROADS, BUT WE TRAVEL ON THE PATH BEFORE
US AND ANTICIPATE THE VICTORY. IT WAS OUR FATHER'S AND OUR
GRANDFATHER'S TIME......... BUT IT IS NOW OUR TIME !!!!!
