This band of brothers…

Today is the birthday of Henry the Fifth, the first monarch of England to grow up speaking and writing fluently in English. Before him, all spoke either French or Saxon. Let Shakespeare say it for me, and for us all; better than any ever said it before, or hence. This movie alone is a large part of why Henry V is one of my favorites of Shakespeare’s works.   Image found here.
