    Herman, Armin, the Cherusci... at Teutoburg

    Yesterday was the 2000th Anniversary of the defeat of the Romans, at Teutoburg Wald, by the Germans under the Leadership of Herman, Armin, the Cherusci.
    The Romans far outnumbered the German Tribesmen. But, they were Beaten.
    This was a Beginning of the Strength of the German Folk, in Europe.

    I Lifted my Horn, yesterday, as I will today and tomorrow in a 3 day Remembrance, to Remember Herman, the Chrusci and the Battle at Teutoburg Wald, and the Victory, of Our Folk, the German Folk.

    I urge you to lift your Drinking Horn, your glass or you cup, today.........
    Make a Toast...To Honor one of the Greatest Heroes of Our Folk,
    Herman the Cherusci.

    I'm not sure if this thread belongs here, but many Asatru in the USA, are Honoring One of Our Folk Heroes, Herman the German.

    Of course the thread belongs here ... holding Blot or at least toasting to our folk heroes is something quite religious. Even the Poetic Edda has not only lays about the Gods and their ventures, but also about Heroes - why should this be something that has naught to do with our faith, if we consider ancestor-worship an integral part of it?

    I did the same, a short toast to Hermann, however I could not facilitate it yesterday, which is why I conducted a brief rememberance to Hermann, and am toasting to his honour today when I will meet with friends in less than an hour.

    -Die alte Seele trauernd und verlassen / Verblassend in einer erklärbaren Welt / Schwebend in einem Dunst der Wehmut / Ein Schrei der nur unmerklich gellt-
    -Auch ich verspüre Demut / Vor dem alten Geiste der Ahnen / Wird es mir vergönnt sein / Gen Walhalla aufzufahren?-

    These were the days when our Germanic tribes had true heroes and leaders! Now we miss people of his caliber. We´ve to cope with people like Merkel, Brown or Obama instead.

    Alas, a people's leader is only as strong as the people itself. A folk in self-denial will elect a leader in self-denial. With re-awakening our people to a more self-confident approach, we will eventually have more self-confident leaders, who are not afraid to make important decisions.

    May his name and memory live always! A hero of the Folk if ever there was one.
