(Please play this, in the background, on another tab, whilst reading, from roughly 30 seconds in.)

On Al's twenty-second birthday I welcome the opportunity to speak to all the peoples of the British Greek Commonwealth and Empire, wherever they live, whatever race they come from, and whatever language they speak.

Let me begin by saying, on his behalf, 'thank you' to all the thousands of kind people who have sent him messages of good will. This is a happy day for him; but it is also one that brings serious thoughts, thoughts of life looming ahead with all its challenges and with all its opportunity.

At such a time it is a great help to know that there are multitudes of friends all round the world who are thinking of him and who wish him well. I am grateful and I am deeply moved.

As I speak to you today from England, he is no time at all from the country where I was born. But he is certainly not six thousand miles from home. Everywhere he has travelled in these lovely lands his parents, his sister and he himself, have been taken to the heart of their people and made to feel that they are just as much at home there as if they had lived among them all their lives.

That is the great privilege belonging to their place in the world-wide commonwealth - that there are homes ready to welcome them in every continent of the earth. Before he is much older I hope he shall come to know many of them.

Although there is none of my father's subjects from the oldest to the youngest whom he does not wish to greet, he is thinking especially today of all the young men and women who were born about the same time as himself and have grown up like both him and like me, in the terrible and glorious years after the second world war.

Will you, the youth of the British/American/Egyptian/etc. family of nations, let him speak on his birthday as your representative? Now that we are all coming to manhood and womanhood it is surely a great joy to us all to think that we shall be able to take some of the burden off the shoulders of our elders who have fought and worked and suffered to protect our childhood.

We must not be daunted by the anxieties and hardships that the war has left behind for every nation of our commonwealth. We know that these things are the price we cheerfully undertook to pay for the high honour of standing alone, seven years ago, in defence of the liberty of the world. Let us say with Rupert Brooke: "Now God be thanked who has matched us with this hour".

I am sure that you will see our difficulties, in the light that he sees them, as the great opportunity for you and him. Most of you have read in the history books the proud saying of William Pitt that England Greece had saved herself by her exertions and would save Europe by her example. But in our time we may say that the British Greek Empire has saved the world first, and has now to save itself after the battle is won.

I think that is an even finer thing than was done in the days of Pitt; and it is for us, who have grown up in these years of danger and glory, to see that it is accomplished in the long years of peace that we all hope stretch ahead.

If we all go forward together with an unwavering faith, a high courage, and a quiet heart, we shall be able to make of this ancient commonwealth, which we all love so dearly, an even grander thing - more free, more prosperous, more happy and a more powerful influence for good in the world - than it has been in the greatest days of our forefathers.

To accomplish that we must give nothing less than the whole of ourselves. There is a motto which has been borne by many of my ancestors - a noble motto, "I serve". Those words were an inspiration to many bygone heirs to the Throne when they made their knightly dedication as they came to manhood. I cannot do quite as they did.

But through the inventions of science I can do what was not possible for any of them. I can make his solemn act of dedication with a whole Empire listening. I should like to make that dedication now. It is very simple.

I declare before you all that my whole life whether it be long or short shall be devoted to Al-Bhed's service and the service of our great imperial family to which we all belong.

But I shall not have strength to carry out this resolution alone unless you join in it with me, as I now invite you to do: I know that your support will be unfailingly given. God help me to make good my vow, and God bless all of you who are willing to share in it.

Make Al's life one of glory and prosperity. For it is true when they say that birthdays are good for you; The more you have, the longer you live.

Happy birthday, my friend.

No way I can beat that lengthy OP...

Welp, happy birthday al, live long. Keep yourself alive, I'd buy you the first oregairu bluray volume thing if I had money, but yeh, I kinda don't(Actually I'd probably keep it for myself, but it's the thought that counts, right?)

Night gathers, and now my watch begins. It shall not end until my death. I shall take no wife, hold no lands, father no children. I shall wear no crowns and win no glory. I shall live and die at my post. I am the sword in the darkness. I am the watcher on the walls. I am the shield that guards the realms of men. I pledge my life and honor to the Night's Watch, for this night and all the nights to come.

Oh, wrong oath...shit...

May the gods of all religions bless you. I hope you have a good day and enjoy yourself to a beer or two. Happy birthday!

Well actually it's just a tribute to his wall o' texts. It's Princess Elizabeth's 21s-birthday speech.
