Better for man to avenge a friend....

Beowulf spoke, the son of Ecgthoew:
"Sorrowful not, brave one! Better for man
To avenge a friend than to much mourn.
All men must die; Let him who may
Win glory ere death. That guerdon is best
For a noble man when his name survives him
Then let us rise up, O ward of the realm,
And haste us forth to behold the track
Of Grendel's dame.


These lines struck me as being very appropriate concerning the events of last week. Instead of moping, let's admit we've failed our job, and once more throw ourselves into the fray.
