As a Veteran I served my Country to make sure that the Constitution was upheld. Now, I feel compelled to defend that same document. The oath I took is as follows:
“I, William Sheehan, do solemnly swear (or affirm) that I will support and defend the Constitution of the United States against all enemies, foreign and domestic; “
As a Buddhist, I also have an obligation to do what I can to benefit all sentient beings, not just the privileged few. If I see something or someone that is hurting others I must step forward and do what I can to assist them.
In Buddhism this is called a Fierce Bodhisattva. I am only on the path to Enlightenment and can only say to be a Fierce Buddhist.
I hope you will read, think and act.
