Thank you for your piece.  . . . I recently lost a very close friend a few days after I posted the video "At Rest". Another friend suggested that my video could have been a fitting tribute . . . I did not disagree.

Strength of Your Love


The strength of love has profoundly changed my life forever. Blessed by the favor of your divine nature, I could never return

to my formal state of being ordinary, contrary to what I felt in time past, your love is everlasting. You reached down through

 time through prayer to alter my destiny from all darkness that would beech me from finding all the possibilities of being free to be

me. You doused me with truth that enabled me to reach for the stars, turning my scars into beautiful memories of triumphs over

the difficulties of life. I’m eternally grateful for the sacrifice and effort you put forth to ensure my success, and for that I’m truly

blessed. Through the trials and test you prove to be the best teacher, leader and guide. It was the strength of your love that

 bought tranquility in my life.

Thank you . . .  you are right. It is misdirection.  I purposely chose the title "At Rest" because this may become the warrior's final rest (RIP). The African Empires were declining but the spirit survives.

The quality of the video is very good.

The title "At REST" is misleading .

According to the story he is really ready again

for the on-going battle.
