Wyrd Words on Hospitality

The best part:

“The society of our ancestors valued many kinds of people. They were Explorers, Scientists, Poets, and Warriors. After Christianity came to Europe, most of the world only remembered the Warriors, but once we were known best as a people of HOSPITALITY. I believe that is a legacy we can, and should, reclaim.”

Using their stories and ways to justify silly modern machismo is not helpful.  We are more than warriors and killers.  I would not he left out business people.  They were very savvy there too.
