A Thanksgiving Message

Screen Shot 2015-11-26 at 9.03.49 AM

On this special day for families across America, I want to share the timeless words I’ve shared with readers on past Thanksgivings.

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.
Abuse no one and no thing, for abuse turns the wise ones 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.

– Tecumseh
(1768-1813) Shawnee Chief

With warmth, peace and love on this Thanksgiving Day,
Michael Krieger

Introducing “Liberty Links”

Over the course of any given day, I come across far more interesting stories and insights from around the world than I could ever consider commenting on here at Liberty Blitzkrieg. Many of these articles are just as impactful as the stuff I’m able to cover, so I’ve decided to share these via a new post that will be published most days, titled “Liberty Links.”

This will typically be published in the early afternoons EST, and will be updated throughout the day as I come across additional interesting tidbits. As such, I suggest refreshing the post several times a day.

I’d love to hear feedback on the project as it unfolds, and any suggestions on how I can make it better. I plan on publishing the first version tomorrow.

In Liberty,
Michael Krieger
