If they stand behind you, protect them.
If they stand beside you, respect them.
If they stand against you defeat them.

Honour, Courage and Respect

Blocking comments on a post because you have to have the last word = cowardly.

Day of Remembrance for Herman of Cherusci
Few mortals have served our ancestral Folk as did Herman, better known as Arminius (his Latinized name) was born in around 18 BCE to the Chieftain of the Cherusci. He was trained as a Roman military commander and achieved the Roman status of Equestrian as a citizen of Rome.

Around 4 CE Hermann assumed command of a Cheruscan detachment of Roman auxiliary forces and returned to the northern part of Germania in around 7 CE where the Roman Empire had hoped to extend its hegemony further to the east under the governorship of Publius Quinctilius Varus, who had been appointed by Caesar Augustus. Hermann began plotting to unite several Germanic tribes to thwart Roman efforts to incorporate their territories into their empire.

In the Fall of 9 CE, Hermann, then 25 years old, along with his alliance of Germanic tribes, launched an ambush and annihilated a Roman Army under the command of Varus. This Roman Army consisted of the Seventeenth, Eighteenth, and Nineteenth Legions, three cavalry detachments, and six cohorts of auxiliaries, totaling around 20,000 men. Now known as the Battle of Teutoburg Forest, this battle took place near Kalkriese Hill, north of Osnabruck, Germany. When Roman defeat became apparent, Varus committed suicide by falling upon his own sword.

Today, Hermann is a great symbol of Germanic unity! He is a great Germanic hero because he not only preserved the freedom of northern Germany and Scandinavia, but also made possible the transmission of the common law to England, and eventually to America.

Herman was very aware of his duties not only as a member of his tribe but also as an Asaman - indeed the two were probably inseparable with him. Shedding is the ideal time to give him praise, because the crucial battle for which he is remembered is generally believed to have been fought during this month.

Today I will raise a horn to all of those that have stood there ground against the armies of Rome that would take away the individual freedoms of our ancestors and to all of those today (both military and civilian) that look to keep our freedoms still.

Hail to Herman the German. SKAL!

Rule 6: You will know you've learned a lesson when your actions change

Wisdom is practice. A little of something is better than a lot of nothing.

Well said.
 
"Every 10 seconds in America we kill a perfectly healthy, loving sweet dog. Every 10 seconds of every hour of every single day of the year. Some people call it madness, but the real madness is that every single one of these deaths is totally and completely preventable. The real madness is the reason that these dogs are at the shelter in the first place and cannot find a home. These dogs are killed because some people would rather buy a pet from a breeder or a pet store. These dogs are killed because some people just got bored of their dog. These dogs are killed because some people like to breed their dogs and then realize they just can't deal with a litter of puppies. These dogs are killed because some people have a new baby and they just don't have time for their old dog. These dogs are killed because some people think that shelter dogs are dirty and have issues. It's hard to believe but these are some of the actual reasons that every 10 seconds a dog has to die by gas chamber, heart stick, lethal injection or gun shot to the head. Some people need to get the hell over themselves and understand that their actions have very real consequences, only then will this madness truly come to an end." ~ Chris Hoar

I don't actually plus or like this but I absolutely agree. When you rescue an animal from a shelter, you're really rescuing yourself from a life of loneliness and misery.
