Those of you who enjoyed Braveheart should like this poem by Bobby Burns on the battle of Bannockburn, where Bruce avenged the death of Wallace.
Robert Bruce’s March To Bannockburn
1793 by Robert Burns
Nows the day and nows the hour
Who will be a traitor knave?
Lay the proud Usurpers low!
Tyranny comes in many forms and we’d be wise to remember the courage of our torefathers and their love of independence and freedom, as well as Paul the Apostles call to spiritual battle, given in Ephesians 6:10-13, ” Finally my brethren, be strong in the Lord and in the power of his might. Put on the whole armor of God, that you may be able to stand against the wiles of the Devil. For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of darkness or this age, against spirtitual hosts of wickedness in the heavenly places. Therefore take up the whole armor of God that you may be able to stand in the evil day, and, having done all, to stand.
William Wallace to his son;
“Dico Tibi Verum, Libertas Optima Rerum: Nunquam Servili Sub Nexu Vivito, Fili, ”
Translated : ” My Son, I tell thee true, freedom is best of all things to be won. Then never live within the Bond of Slavery.”
