I retired from capsuleer life eight years ago in the wake of corporate theft, character assassination and betrayal by some of my most trusted friends. I allowed myself to be beaten and for these past years I have sat in obscurity and wallowed in my own misery but my heart stirs once again with passion as I look at the galaxy around me.
It is with a burdened heart that I make a return to this intergalactic forum; pained by the struggling and shattered ghost of a State once proud and powerful.
What has become of us? We are a people that rose from the ashes of an occupied homeworld and a flight into the reaches of space to rebuild! We are a people tested by the tempests of Storm Wind, tried by the chilling fury of Cold Wind and strengthened by the might and wisdom of our ancestors! Where are you, patriots and pioneers of this great State? What shadow looms over us now that we are content to let the glory of the Maker fade into obscurity?
We have endured great loss and great difficulty, we have seen ourselves diminished and reel from the wounds that have been dealt to us but we are not broken! We are not defeated and we will not go quietly.
Now is the time to rise up for your family, your people and your State!
Our borders are beset by enemies old and new but they are not beyond our reckoning, they are not greater than we are!
I know not what I alone can do to aid the State and its people but I know that I will do all that I can. I urge my fellow capsuleers to donate materials, materiel, time and energy to strengthening our borders, repairing our infrastructure and restoring our place within New Eden.
Let us remind our enemies that we are Caldari and we will not be silenced.
