I was watching Band of Brothers – ‘Carretan’ last night and had to write out this conversation that takes place between two soldiers.
Spears: What’s your name trooper.
Blythe: Blythe sir, Albert Blythe.
Spears: Do you know why you hid in that ditch Blythe.
Blythe: I was scared.
Spears: We’re all scared. You hid in that ditch because you think there is still hope. But Blythe, the only hope you have is to accept the fact that you are already dead. And the sooner you accept that, the sooner you will be able to function as a soldier’s suppossed to function…
Whoever finds his life will lose it, and whoever loses his life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:39
