The Warriors Heart

Author: Erin Greitens - By: Montana Craft


The reader is asked to put themselves in the shoes of others. Eric shares his evolution from average kid to globe-traveling humanitarian to warrior, training and serving with the most elite military outfit in the world- the Navy SEALs. Along the way, you'll be asked to consider the power of choices, of making the decision each and every day to act with courage and compassion.


You never know how you feel about a book till you read it, this book changed my point-of-view on life today. It made me realize that there were/are serious problems going on in this world and some people never know how horrible it is until they read about it. It makes you look at life from a different prescriptive. People now a days take everything they have for granted,such as. Health, clean water, clothing, food, a stable home, family, money, safety, justice. Now on the other side of the world people die because they have a serious infection that takes over their bodies, how people sleep in houses made out of mud and straw, these people make nothing out of something. How they can still be happy even though they don't own much. I recommend the reading the book, it makes you a different person & makes you want to do better for the world/community.
