  • Collins ask us to re-evaluate what we consider the most important soldiers in
    life…. Is it the idealized version of the handsome jungle warrior, the kissing sailor
    at the end of D-day, or is it a much broader definition…?
    The warriors who save our lives come in many shapes, sizes, and forms, To a
    starving Indian child, the barely 5’ tall Mother Theresa was a giant. To a
    wounded officer, the nurse, who spent endless nights bringing him back to health
    was a profound warrior. To a child suffering fear, the reassurance of his Mother’s
    calm voice is invincible. To the orphan abandoned by war, the marine who lifts
    him within his arms and takes him to shelter is a poet of love. There are Warriors
    all around us, “Solidado de la Corazon.” Soldiers of the heart pave our lives with
    love, and allow us, in our own small or large way to be the warrior that helps
    another, and another.
