When a women reaches a certain age, she feels particularly vulnerable in this world where some people feel no compunction about robbing in any way they need to, a person who appears to be a soft target. There are physical things that WAR teaches it's members that I am unable to do. But learning to shoot and care for a weapon makes me feel a lot less like a soft target. The camaraderie of other women makes it possible for me to hone my skills in an atmosphere of acceptance and gives me the courage to believe I can protect myself if I ever need to.
