Inspiration from the past
I must thank Byzantium's Shores for the link and comment they left on my post regarding the bombs in London. I must also thank him for the text of the speeches by Henry V and Winston Churchill. They may have been centuries apart, but they certainly capture the spirit of the English when someone takes them on in order to destroy the things they hold valuable.
They still inspire today and should send a warning to all those who think they can frighten us or threaten our culture or our heritage. We may be tolerant in the extreme, but there comes a time when we will go no further. Mr Bin Laden and his supporters and the appeasers may be about to discover that the limit has been reached.
