This is a simple post honoring New York’s bravest – the 300 White New York Firemen who gave their lives for our people on 9-11-01.
Like the 300 Spartans of ancient times who faced down the Asiatic hordes at Thermopylae, our modern day 300 Spartans/FDNY did not die in vain. Their spirit lives on in the minds and souls of free White men everywhere.
“When You Go Home,
Tell Them Of Us And Say,
For Their Tomorrow,
We Gave Our Today”
(The epitaph inscribed on
the Commonwealth cemetery war memorial at Kohima.[5)
“When boyhood’s fire was in my blood
I read of ancient free men
In Greece and in Rome where bravely stood
300 men and 3 men”
(The first verse of
Thomas Osborne Davis’
“A Nation Once Again”.
Now considered a prime example of Irish rebel music and sung by the Wolfe Tones and many other Irish singers. The “3 men” are the Horatii)
“Earth! render back from out thy breast
A remnant of our Spartan dead!
Of the three hundred grant but three,
To make a new Thermopylae!”
Canto iii, Stanza 86, 7)
