Whether you got cheated or just got beat the old fashioned way, losing is never easy. A principled person understands that integrity and personal dignity are valuable characteristics to hold onto, even in defeat.
A principled person also understand that accepting injustice and "moving on,"is sometimes not an option. We have systems put in place to handle miscarriages of justice, disputes and conflicts. Those systems become trusted and serve as necessary bulwarks against injustice, tyranny and corruption, we need them to maintain our liberty. When necessary, we turn to those systems and expect them to correct injustices, to right wrongs and to moderate conflict. Those systems have failed us!

When we can no longer rely on those systems, how do we rectify the injustices, disputes and corruption that takes place?
Do we "get over it," "move on," "put it behind us," or do we face the injustice and do for ourselves what the systems have failed to do for us? Should we blame an outraged parent for defending their molested child? Should we condemn the rape victim for confronting her attacker? Should we criticize the business owner for fighting with the thief? Or, should we encourage them to "move on," and "accept these injustices with dignity?"
The answer is obvious. But, for a better understanding, let us place ourselves in any of the above predicaments, now imagine that the systems you rely on, failing you. When the cops, the courts, the security fail to protect you, when the systems that you were counting on do not serve their purpose, what would you do?
You would fight! You know you would, you would fight to correct that injustice and you wouldn't care what anyone else thought or how they felt about it. Because in the end, what a man stands for makes all of the difference!
What he doesn't stand for also makes all the difference!

It is simple, some things are worth fighting for, some things, you just can't walk away from, some things, you just can't "move on" from. It's not the petty things, it's not the inconsequential things that matter, we aren't talking about those things, we are talking about the real stuff, the things that a man cannot allow himself to just "let go."
Some people get it, others will never understand it. The truth is, there are some things that transcend ourselves, some things that are greater than us, some things that are worthy, of even our very lives. To understand this is something that one must come to realize through revelation, it cannot be taught or learned.
When you hold the hand of your infant child for the first time, you feel it. When a sincere desire of your heart is prayerfully answered, you feel it. When a folded flag is handed to a grieving widow, you see it. When your eyes melt in tears over the loss of a loved one, you know it, it burns within you. "IT" becomes your conviction, your resolve, there is not doubt, this is real, this.........is worthy fighting for!
To a mother it is her child.
To a father it is his family.
To the soldier it is his comrade, his flag and his country.
To the Christian it is his saviour.
To the Patriot it is his freedom.
To the dying it is, just one more breath.
To the mourning, it is just one more minute, one more day.
To the hungry it is one more meal.
To the thirsty it is one single drop.
Who is anyone to question or dare ask why?
Some things are just worth fighting for!
