Hey, why not just say it in English or provide the English translation with it. Latin sounds noble but it’s rather obscure too...

You Are a Banana
....and evening! oo-oo-oo! :)

Like a banana, you are tender hearted and sensitive. And the more someone gets to know you, the softer and sweeter you are.
You are loving, gentle, and compassionate. You touch others with your warmth, empathy, and understanding.

You are mild-mannered and find it easy to get along with almost anyone. You help harsher personalities mellow out.
You are vulnerable and sensitive, but you avoid letting others hurt you with your somewhat hardened exterior. You are tough when you need to be.

You value harmony and togetherness. You like to be in a relationship and usually adore your partner.
You don't make waves. If someone annoys or insults you, you rather walk away than cause a scene.

REST IN PEACE, FALLEN BROTHER!



SPC William J. Gilbert , USA
3rd Battalion, 41st Inf, 1st BCT, 1st Armored Div
KIA Afghanistan 14May2013



I have fought a good fight,
I have finished my course,
I have kept the faith.
2 Timothy 4:7 (KJV)

"Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict;
For it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar.
As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be."
(1 Maccabees 3:58–60)

Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in peace!
We who remain hold you in high honor.
Rest, fallen brother, in this sacred precinct;
We who remain keep this place sacred.
Rest, fallen brother, among these, your comrades;
We who remain keep the watch.
Rest, fallen brother, among these who answered the Nation’s call;
We who remain press the fight forward in your name.
Rest, fallen brother, lay down thy burden;
We who remain have taken up the torch.
Rest in Peace, fallen brother, rest in eternal peace!

You Are a Pineapple
Like a pineapple, you have a tough exterior. You aren't one to be messed with, that's for sure.
But if people peel away your layers, they'll find you're quite sweet on the inside - with a strong inner core.

You have a strong moral fiber. You aren't easily swayed by popular opinion. You have your own ideas about what is right.
You are independent and self-reliant. You are honest with others and never ask too much of them.

It takes you a bit longer to make friends than most people, but the friends you have are for life.
You are quick to act and brave in your decisions. You go with your intuition, and it has rarely led you astray.

I like Latin - it reminds me of my childhood, when the Catholic Mass was said in Latin, when I came to intellectual consciousness, and when our great Nation was in its ascendency - the era of Pax Americana.



"Riamh nár dhruid ó sbairn lann!"

Genuflectimus non ad principem sed ad Principem Pacis!

Listen, O isles, unto me; and hearken, ye people, from far; The LORD hath called me from the womb; from the bowels of my mother hath he made mention of my name. (Isaiah 49:1 KJV)

I am willing to bet that most of our male FReepers would not want to be called any kind of “Fruit”.

I also like English... the language of the US Constitution, and I can actually read it :-)

Hey, there's style then there's understanding :-)

Being one of those wascally Protestants now I never had the issue of Latin in services. In a past life, so to speak, I did use Hebrew. But the English was helpfully furnished.

כי ככה אהבתי האלוהים את העולם, אשר נתן את בנו רק הוליד, כי כל מי שמאמין בו לא יאבד, אבל יש חיי נצח.

(John 3:16)
