See the new "I Love You" video!

Shame on you. This could be the greatest night of our lives, but you're going to let it be the worst. And I guarantee a week won't go by in your life you won't regret walking out, letting them get the best of you. Well, I'm not going home. We've come too far! And I'm going to stay right here and fight for this lost cause. A day may come when the courage of men fails... but it is not THIS day. The line must be drawn HERE. This far, no further! I'm not saying it's going to be easy. You're going to work harder than you ever worked before. But that's fine, we'll just get tougher with it! If a person grits his teeth and shows real determination, failure is not an option. That's how winning is done! Believe me when I say we can break this army here, and win just one for the Gipper. But I say to you what every warrior has known since the beginning of time: you've got to get mad. I mean plum mad dog mean. If you would be free men, then you must fight to fulfill that promise! Let us cut out their living guts one inch at a time, and they will know what we can do! Let no man forget how menacing we are. We are lions! You're like a big bear, man! This is YOUR time! Seize the day, never surrender, victory or death... that's the Chicago Way! Who's with me? Clap! Clap! Don't let Tink die! Clap! Alright! Let's fly! And gentlemen in England now abed shall know my name is the Lord when I tell our enemies that they may take our lives, but they'll never take our Independence Day!

Finals brought me here
My Professor linked this video in a recent email reminding us to study for an upcoming exam. It read: "Greetings Students, EXAM 2 is on Wednesday March 18th (get INSPIRED)." :D
Every man has a task which he must fulfill.  You must rise up one day, when you are needed the most, when the light is at its weakest, to do what no one else has the courage, what no one else has the heart or ability to do.  You shall lead the charge, you shall stand strong against the foe, and you shall prove them wrong.  Fight for the cause of GOOD and FREEDOM.  Dispel evil, eradicate corruption.  THIS is your journey, your road. Follow another man, or BE followed, it is your choice.  Yet, in the end, the destination is the same for everyone, and indeed, what a glorious destination it is.  So now, to the fields of death, to the skies of heaven, you must fight, and you will fight to the end of time, you will fight to your physical limits, because there is nothing in the world that can stop you when you set your heart to a goal.  Have a heart of courage, a heart of steel.  Fight for the good of your own kind, fight for the salvation of your people!  Leave destruction in your wake.  Defeat all who oppose you, destroy the will of others so they will not stand in you way.  In the end, you destination is set and you will achieve it, even at the cost of a thousand souls.  A day will come when we must bow to fear, but it is not this day!  This day we fight!  We stand and we fight as one!  A day will come when we are no more, but it is not this day!  Today we look Death in the eye and he is the one to back down!  Yesterday, you worked as brothers, sons, and husbands.  To day you stand as warriors, as men of the Earth!!!!! Sorry, just had to add something of my own (or partially of my own).
