A knight in shining armor! What a picture that evokes. The errant knight on his white steed, off to battle who knows what, for the honor of the lady fair! His code – honor, chivalry, truth and justice. We don’t see many armor clad young men galloping down I95 these days, but that doesn’t mean that the days of chivalry are over. Many men, today, are just as worthy of knighthood as Sir Gawain, Sir Lancelot, and even Sir Galahad! They are the men who jump in to stand up for a friend. They don’t participate in “bashing” others who aren’t
there to defend themselves. They also refrain from the mindless bragging many men
feel necessary when they’ve “scored”. Instead, they speak with fondness and respect for
women. Sure, they may kid around or tease, but in their hearts and in their character, that
respect is evident.
that I can count a few among my friends as well. Recently, I’ve made a new friend. I’ve
never met him in person, but I’ve gotten to know him through some of my close friends,
is Tony Walker. When his friends were verbally attacked, he jumped in to defend and
protect! He’s the loving father of an autistic child and believe me, having a special needs
child is a never ending battle for justice!
Even though I’ve never met Tony in person, I can tell you that I honestly admire him and
am grateful to be his FB friend and fellow DRL family member. So here’s to the Knights in Shining Armor in our lives today. Here’s to you, Tony!
