Act of Valor Quotes:
“for all those who have been down range, to us, and to those like us, Damn Few.”
“You live your life by a code, it’s your shoreline, it’s what guides you home. And trust me, you’re always trying to get home.”
“No one’s stronger than a man who can harness his emotions and his past.
Use it as motivation to write the most important letter of your life.”
Chief Tecumseh Poem
At the end, it had this amazing poem by Native American Shawnee Chief, Tecumseh.
The poem moved me very deeply and the first friend I spoke with today also mentioned the poem so I had to find it and share it. I hope it encourages you, lifts your spirit and helps you to strive for the greatness that you were created for. Respect others and demand that they respect you. Work hard to beatify the things around you.
With that I give you Tecumseh
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.
