The Poetry and Lyrics of Jayl De Lara -

What's happened to the idea and principle of service?? So many folks these days seem to be completely self-serving and worst of all, our politicians seem to have completely forgotten the idea of public service. They really cannot kid us any longer that they are doing it for us! The Reverand Dr.Martin Luther King said "Everyone can be great ... because anybody can serve. You don't have to have a college degree to serve. You don't have to make your subject and verb agree to serve. You only need a heart full of grace. A soul generated by love".
As a trained martial arts warrior, the idea of serving the school and the master are at the very core of our training. It is not weakness to serve others before oneself - it is powerful, it is liberating and it is love.
For me personally, I love to serve my family, my friends, my students, my community, my country, my Queen, my continent, my planet, my galaxy and most of all my Lord. Jesus Christ was the greatest of all serving warriors. He was prepared to die for us!
