Act Of Valor: Review

Act of Valor was the top movie  over the weekend.  I saw the movie and it was great. The people, events, everything in the movie looked real. Some might call this an action movie. I would not call it that. The gun battles and stuff in the movie were great. But to me that was not the focus of Act of Valor. When you walk away from the movie. You don't walk away saying that a gun fight in the movie was great. You walk away saying the men and women in the military are great. The movies did a good job showing a real look at the people in the military. At the end of the movie  they put up a list of all the Navy Seals that have been killed since 911. And in the movie  a guy reads a poem by Tecumseh. This is    that poem.

Live your life that the fear of death
can never enter your heart.
Trouble no one about his religion.
Respect others in their views
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 of service to your people.
Prepare a noble death song for the day
when you go over the great divide.
Always give a word or sign of salute when meeting
or passing a friend, or even a stranger, if in a lonely place.
Show respect to all people, but grovel to none.
When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light,
for your life, for your strength.
Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living.
If you see no reason to give thanks,
the fault lies in yourself.
Touch not the poisonous firewater that makes wise ones turn to fools
and robs the spirit of its vision.
When your time comes to die, be not like those
whose hearts are filled with 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.
-By Tecumseh
