This is precisely what made the Vikings such fierce warriors. If you do not fear death, and it is indeed an honor to die in battle, you can then wield it with passion as you know you would - in turn - bestow that honor to your foes.
Wear yours scars with pride because as scar-less man has not felt the hardship of life or the feeling of pain. This goes for our military,give them respect & love for everything they do for this country. God bless our troops.
