THE SPARTAN CODE

This must become OUR COMMITMENT as we PREPARE FOR GLORY!

In every community, there are those who are average. Citizens who are content just being a part of the masses. However, to others that is just not good enough. Some long to be part of something that is great, something that is special, and something that exceeds being normal. These are the kind of people that have a desire to bring a lasting change to the world. These are the ones who choose to live their life by a different code. In the Spartan world, those who choose to live by the virtues of the code sacrificed everything for the good of all. The Spartan Code was renowned for creating a kind of citizen that exemplified excellence. If a Spartan was coming home after a battle, or offering charity to an elder, the code demanded appropriate behavior:


Asked why it was dishonorable to return without a shield and not without a helmet, the Spartan king, Demaratos (510 - 491) is said to have replied: "Because the latter they put on for their own protection, but the shield for the common good of all." (Plutarch, Mor.220)


An old man wandering around the Olympic Games looking for a seat was jeered at by the crowd until he reached the seats of the Spartans, whereupon every Spartan younger than him, and some that were older, stood up and offered him their seat. The crowd applauded and the old man turned to them with a sigh, saying "All Greeks know what is right, but only the Spartans do it."


THIS is what the ancient SPARTANS were committed to do…they always defended their honor…pushed for excellence...and upheld their code:

  1. Never abandon your post on the battlefield. Never flee. Never surrender.
  2. You must sacrifice for the welfare of all.
  3. Stand up and fight through adversity others are unwilling to endure.
  4. Live for the moment of glory that each day provides.
  5. Never compromise the Code.

THIS IS NO LONGER JUST AN ANCIENT CODE---BUT OUR COMMITMENT TO EACH OTHER AS FELLOW SPARTANS
