  1. Rezinate,

    Thank you very much for this heart warming post. Those are men about who people love to know, to hear their story.

    For me is also personal as my nation story and Magyar story is strongly connected. We even have song with same words in both languages to sing together to honor our friendship ๐Ÿ™‚

    And that little thing about “go in to the light” made me laugh madly – lucky son- in- law your friend was kind to not send him “somewhere over the rainbow” ๐Ÿ˜€

    Yes – from one side it is a sad thing that one who was not of the nations was more of a warrior in the finest of the nations traditions than the many who make the claim-one who would never have thought to describe himself in such a manner.
    But from other – it is good thing to meet someone who, in spite being from other nation, proves warriors are everywhere, in every nation and ..similar will always find and meet similar.
    So they can show difference and help people to see what’s wrong and what’s right – maybe sometimes it’s struck even more and gives more hope and makes you smile – when that person is “outsider” … ๐Ÿ™‚

    To say someone is a man most often is done so by way of a generic
    gender reference rather than a descriptive embodiment of what a man
    should, and was intended to be.
    Bela was the latter, and I learned a long time ago that no nation can
    make a valid claim of exclusivity to that title or the one of warrior.
    I am fortunate in knowing men of all races, all nations,that embody
    such characteristics-and to a man they don’t make a lot of noise about it.
    They shun accolades and the spotlight-finding their reward and satisfaction
    in the knowledge that they live and act as men, that in doing so they benefit
    themselves and others.
    Sad it is that any are so insecure, so lacking, they feel compelled to write
    books to inform people they consider themselves to be men and warriors, all
    the while relying on lies to present their case.
