I am adding this to the Crane Book of Wisdom blog as well as my personal Crane Book of Wisdom because I feel it is relevant to those Pagans who serve out military with honor & distinction as well the Pagans who serve with the local police department. I also feel this applies to Druids who are the stewards of Earth and all its ecological habitats.
“Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night’s Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.“―The Night’s Watch oath
