Act of Valor: great citation of Chief Tecumseh

Just watched the movie “Act of Valor” (IMDB 6.5/10) where an elite team of Navy SEALs embark on a covert mission to recover a kidnapped CIA agent. The film end with this great citation of Chief Tecumseh

Tecumseh was a Native American leader of the Shawnee and a large tribal confederacy which opposed the United States during Tecumseh’s War and the War of 1812. Tecumseh has become an iconic folk hero in American, Indian and Canadian history. Wikipedia

So live your life that the fear of death can never enter your heart. Trouble no one about their religion; respect others in their view, 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 its purpose in the service of your people
When it comes your time to die, be not like those whose hearts are filled with the 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.

Which in french could be translated like this:

Vis ta vie en ne laissant jamais la peur de la mort envahir ton cœur. Ne contrarie jamais personne sur sa religion, respecte les autres et leur choix et demande leurs de respecter les tiens. Aime ta vie, perfectionne ta vie, magnifie toutes les choses de ta vie. Faits que dans ta vie que tu es toujours besoin de venir en aide aux autres. Quand ton heure viendra de mourir, ne sois pas comme ceux là que la mort terrifie, qui leur jour venu pleurent et prient pour un sursis et une vie différente de la leur. Chante ta mort et meurt comme un héros qui rentre à la maison.
