Braveheart!

William Wallace!

I have fallen in love with Braveheart. A movie which tells the story of the thirteenth century’s Scottish warrior named William Wallace who led the Scots in the First War of Scottish Independence against King Edward I of England. I have seen this movie numerous times now. My favorite part of the movie is when Wallace (Mel Gibson) gives freedom speech to his countrymen to bring the zeal in them to fight for the freedom of their land. Here’s that speech that fills me with zeal every time I see this movie.


I am William Wallace! And I see a whole army of my countrymen, here in defiance of tyranny! You have come to fight as free men. And free man you are! What will you do without freedom? Will you fight? Fight and you may die. Run, and you will live at least awhile. And dying in your bed many years from now, would you be willing to trade all the days from this day to that for one chance, just one chance, to come back here as young men and tell our enemies that they may take our lives but they will never take our freedom!
