St. Crispin Day

Great Scot

If you can listen to this, and not get a lump in your throat, you have no soul.

St. Crispin's Day Speech

It is always important to remember that there are things in this world that are noble and worthy of any sacrifice.

I just finished "Flags of our Fathers" which describes the heroism exhibited by the Marines at Iwo Jima. They are a band of brothers that fought the great battles. Those that survived, refused to be called heros but deferred to their "brothers" that never made it home.

I'm taking a Shakespeare class on campus and a few weeks back we did Henry V. After we talk about it and work with the play for a week we have to watch a movie verison then we talk about it. I watched this verison and it left us all talking about this particular speech, and many of Henry's speeches in this play for another week. It made me want to get up and fight the good fight.

I really love the scene after the battle and the whole group singing together and gathering the dead, coming together.

Three cheers, for posting this!
