What About You?

Few who attend the Naval Academy ever forget the first time they climbed into a boxing ring to face an opponent as committed as they to physically defeating them, to breaking down their weaknesses, to dominate and to win.

Do you remember what was going through you in the time leading up to that match? How did you prepare yourself for it both mentally and physically? What did you learn about yourself that day? Was your opponent stronger than you, faster, or more determined?

We are alone in the ring. Only we can win or lose. All things being equal, the victor is he who's desire runs deeper, whose purpose is more clear. So too in the ring of choice. It is the perfect stage to ask the deeply personal question about our own moral fiber and resolve.
