Veterans Day 11-11-12

On behalf of the HISSTANK.com staff and board members, we would all like to say, Thank You to all of our Vets for protecting the greatest experiment in freedom that the world has ever seen.

“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.”

~Native American Shawnee Chief Tecumseh

    Obviously it's also Rememberance Day in the UK as well. So I'd like to thank all British service men and women who are serving or have given their lives for our great country. I'd also like to send my respects to the service men and women of the US and all other countries.
    As we are an international community.
