Act of Valor
I am back in Louisiana now. It is crazy how much I missed this place. When I got here it was like I hadn’t been gone at all. There is so much going on and so much to write about the past few days. I will start writing it all out soon so be ready for long blog posts but for now I am going to keep things simple. Today I sat around and watched movies, I am heading to the store soon so I can cook because for some reason that is exactly what I feel like doing.
The 2 movies I watched today I took away some very inspirational bits that I want to share.
Act of Valor
So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion;respect others in their view, and demand that they respect yours. Love your life, perfect your life, beautify all things in your life. Seek to make your life long and its purpose in the service of your people. Prepare a noble death song for the day when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or a sign of salute when meeting or passing a friend, even a stranger, when in a lonely place. Show respect to all people and grovel to none.
When you arise in the morning give thanks for the food and for the joy of living. If you see no reason for giving thanks, the fault lies only in yourself. Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones to fools and robs the spirit of its vision.
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the fear of death, so that when their time comes they weep and pray for a little more time to live their lives over again in a different way. Sing your death song and die like a hero going home. -Tecumseh

If a problem can be solved there is no use worrying about it. If it can’t be solved, worrying will do no good.
There is another great difference between our civilization and yours. You admire the man who pushes his way to the top in any walk of life, while we admire the man who abandons his ego.
If only my hand could express what is in my heart.
