Description: 

"From a warrior to a park bench, and from the park bench to having a hand out to ask for a drink of water and a piece of bread.

"From a warrior to a park bench, and from the park bench to having a hand out to ask for a drink of water and a piece of bread. He just says, 'I need something so that I can stand once more and be a warrior. I served to give, will you give so I can serve again?'”  —Joe Minter
