My children, this is the day for which you were born. You will face an army of men who have never lost a war. Men who have forgotten what it means to be afraid. We will bring fear once again to Show White’s army.
In every business I tried, I can see now, it wasn’t me that failed. Something was missing. Even if I’d known what it was, there’s nothing I could have done about it, because you can’t create this thing. And it makes all the difference in the world between success and failure. War.
This is the nature of war: By protecting others, you save yourself. If you only think of yourself, you’ll only destroy yourself.
I’ve been thinking these past two weeks that I know something. Something that civilians don’t know, but you know what? They’re the ones running this show. I mean, I’ve lived the damn war, but it’s still their war. Isn’t it? Their movie.
I look at each of you and I see the marks of this long and terrible war. For our children, our children’s children, so they will not carry these marks. But they will know who we are and what we did. That we did not bow down! We did not give in! We rose up, at this moment, at this hour, willing to sacrifice everything so that they can live in freedom! On this night, we take back our world!
