Forward, the Light Brigade!"
Was there a man dismay'd?
Not tho' the soldier knew
Someone had blunder'd:
Theirs not to make reply,
Theirs not to reason why,
Theirs but to do and die:
Into the valley of Death
Rode the six hundred.

Alfred, Lord Tennyson

The Charge of the Light Brigade

Psalm 23:4

Even though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death,I will fear no evil, for you are with me; your rod and your staff comfort me.

St. Mary Joseph Rossello

Hebrews 2:1-3

Therefore, we must attend all the more to what we have heard, so that we may not be carried away. For if the word announced through angels proved firm, and every transgression and disobedience received its just recompense, how shall we escape if we ignore so great a salvation? Announced originally through the Lord, it was confirmed for us by those who had heard.

Psalm 46:11-12

Be still and know that I am God! I am exalted among the nations, exalted on the earth. The Lord of hosts is with us; our stronghold is the God of Jacob.
