The Fire Nation Oath
My life I give to my country
with my hands I fight for Fire Lord Ozai and our Forefathers before him
with my mind I seek ways to better my country
and with my feet I march to serve my nation
This is what I could gather from the oat that the kids recited in school in The Headband episode. If anyone has a better version, feel free to post it because the last verse was hard to understand. I think it's very interesting how the kids from the Fire Nation are educated, and how they inculcate such values and patriotism. It also gives us a notion of how being a normal citizen of the Fire Nation is. They are not fire cracking little monsters at all, in fact, it's quite the opposite. If you have seen the episode, you may recall the scene were the kids are surprised when Aang tells them that the Air Nomads didnt have any army at all. Most of the history the are taught is written so that the Fire Nation appears as the hero of the war, and that it is doing the right thing for everyone.
