Volume 6, Issue 24

The theme for today is to capitulate, to give in, to yield, to concede.

To Surrender.

Ted: The Three Hundred

Surrender? Never. The rest can capitulate, go home, but here we shall stand. We will fight in the very shade of arrows. We shall hold here.

The tale shall grow in the telling. The shame felt by others who abandonned their fates will be the looking glass to our final struggle. History calls to us, beckoning, beseeching, aching for heroes. The sand will drink our blood and our names will be forgotten. But that we stood together never shall be. That we held this pass will live for generations; your sons will tell their sons that you stood at Thermopylae.
