Valhalla

Valhalla: from Norse Mythology, a dwelling in Asgard, the Norse Heaven, reserved for the souls of those who died heroic deaths.

“If you are able, save for them a place inside of you and save one backward glance when you are leaving for the places they can no longer go.
Be not ashamed to say you loved them, though you may or may not have always. Take what they have taught you with their dying and keep it with your own.
And in that time when men decide and feel safe to call the war insane, take one moment to embrace those gentle heroes you left behind.”
