No matter how provoked this man gets, he never fights.
Some call him a coward but I say that he's in the right.
He is a pacifist, he'll never raise his fists in anger.
He will not fight a friend, he will not fight a stranger.
Last year somebody hit him so hard that it broke his jaw.
He immediately forgave him, I was stunned and amazed by what I saw.
Violence is something that he truly detests.
Just being his friend, makes me truly blessed.
He may not be a saint but he's pretty damn close.
When he dedicated his life to peace, it was a very good choice.
