This song was written after I attended the field memorial service of a young captain who was killed in a river crossing in Afghanistan in 2005. It is dedicated to all service members, especially those serving in our special forces, who have risen to higher standards of character and service in their campaign against human oppression worldwide. Many of us have known someone who has given life and/or freedom in what I consider the "greater" war, the war to preserve free choice, hope, and human kindness in a sometimes cruel world.
Inset into this song is a recording of the Special Forces Prayer, recorded by an SF chaplain. It is a moving reminder of how greatly we all rely upon our Creator in any good endeavor. I invite you to visit http://www.sfahq.org/the-origin-of-the-special-forces-prayer/ to read the origin of this prayer in detail. Briefly, I want to cite that the prayer was written by Army chaplain John Stevey in 1961 for the Green Berets about to ship out to Viet Nam. It has long been an inspiration to me, personally.
I hope you enjoy this reflection; it is what I witnessed and felt at the field memorial service --as much as can be captured in words, anyway. There's a kindred spirit that unites service members, particularly in times of loss. It can't truly be articulated, but it can give us the strength to live and give beyond ourselves for the sake of our brothers and sisters in service.
God bless the warriors who serve for hope of a better world!
Just a meme, but I wrote some interesting code to generate the "alignment" effect of stars viewed from a certain angle. The script is included in the .m file. The language is matlab but you can probably figure out how to port it if you want to use it.
The Nano cryptocurrency network suffered a spam attack (numerous frivolous transactions) in March 2021. This left nodes with many transactions which were stored in nodes' memory but not confirmed by reaching a voting quorum. Two months later, after updating the to protocol v22, the network finally clears the backlog.
CAD model for a simple holder/stand to insert your toothbrush that keeps it upright. Flared base keeps it stable under moderate tipping. Tapered hole made to fit a typical round toothbrush handle, though you may want to modify it to your particular brush brand. Easily 3D printed using the included STL file. Depending on the porosity of the 3D print, I recommend applying a coating of nail polish or some other substance to seal the surface and make it watertight to prevent mold growing inside the part.
