St. Crispin's Day Remembered

Today, we remember St. Crispin's Day and the anniversary of the Battle of Agincourt. In that historic battle in 1415, on French soil, an overwhelming number of French soldiers were soundly defeated by the ragtag English army. 
God's hand of Providence was clearly shown that day, and continues to be shown today in our time.
What follows in the video is a rousing speech, one of the most famous speeches in history, given by Harry (King Henry V) to his men before the Battle of Agincourt.

"The king's heart is in the hand of the LORD, as the rivers of water: He turneth it whithersoever He will."
Proverbs 21:1

That's what the people of Britain tend to do. To somehow muddle through to victory.
