Your fresh breath gives forth life, O Mother Nature.

Give me the strength to stand up and be worthy of your warm embrace as I prepare to embrace those who have cold hearts.

Pierce my heart with your sharp lightning and deafen my ears with the sound of your thunder.

Drown me in your ever-flowing waters and bury me in the humus of your uncovering history.

From your bosom, let your resting warriors resurrect to hold your armor and eventually raise our arms in victory.

Permit me to use their vigor and zeal, their bravery and strength to serve you and the rest of humanity; and live in harmony, in peace, and in prosperity.
