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.

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

In this crazy time of ours I sit here holding back tears as my son leaves to start his new chapter in life. Im so proud of you son although the leaders of this country scare me in their views and decision making. I hope and pray you return safe and God and your Guardian Angel watch over and protect you. It seems like just yesterday I was changing your diapers and watching you take your first steps and saying your first words. Your a man now but the memories of your life growing up will be with me forever. These last few days weve spent together have been awesome and this old man cherishes every single moment. I am very proud of you son and love you with all my heart. Safe travels and may God be with you in your next adventure.

Congratulations on raising him right dad. His brothers and sisters in arms will watch over him and God will protect him and bring him home safe. Thank you for yours, your wife, and now your son's service.
