Work of the Week #2

King Minkathnaazrah’s speech, given on the beaches of Arkoul during the Great War that took place on Pathallea 1,000 years prior to the setting of the book Pathallea itself…:

It’s not that we out-performed the enemy so late in the war, that we are here.

It’s not that we out-witted the enemy in the depths of despair, that we are here.

It’s not that we pounded them into submission with our weapons, that we are here.

It’s not that we succeeded in asymmetrical warfare tactics, that we are here.

It’s not even that we got lucky in our tactics against such a foe, that we are here.

No.

We are here because we never gave up.

We are here because we never gave in.

We are here because we never stopped fighting.

We are here because we love freedom more than we fear death.

We are here because we knew that failure wasn’t an option for our kind.

Everyone did their part to make this advancement possible.

Every single one of you here on the beaches of Arkoul has earned your place here.

Every single one of you deserves to be here, as well as all those who could not be here.

You made this happen, not me.

This amazing achievement was only possible because of you, with your iron will.

You, who chose to stay your ground, deserve this coming victory more than anyone.

Savour that victory, when it comes.

For it will come, so long as that iron will stays within each and every one of you here.

Believe you can eliminate the Slenka, and it will happen.

The past twenty five years of advancement is proof of this.

There’s no stopping us now, because of the fire of liberty in our hearts.

There’s no stopping us now, when the great Azuephoydah still stands proudly tall.

There’s no stopping us now, for we’ll only cease when we’re all dead!

Spoken again by the Professor within Pathallea‘s timeline as a rallying-speech.

*Happy Family Day, everyone!  🙂
