Conflict is necessary in our lives because it is only through conflict we grow. Reflect on your own life and look at all the conflicts you had to endure to become who you are today. I humbily suggest that we are a products of conflict, individually and collectively. When we look at the definitiopn of a warrior we can see that it is bigger than a physical war.
