While Julius Caesar was famously assassinated on March 15 (the Ides of March) in 44 BC, if he were to have given a statement on this day, it might have been something like this:
"Romans, countrymen, and friends, on this fateful day,
I stand before you not as a conqueror,
but as your fellow citizen.
We have embarked on a journey to strengthen Rome, and it is through unity and collaboration that we can achieve a lasting peace and prosperity for our great Republic.
Let us be vigilant against those who would seek to divide us, as it is in our unity that we find our true strength.
Let us work together to bring about a new age of Roman glory, one that is built on fairness, justice, and equality for all.
In the face of adversity, let us not be swayed by fear or suspicion, but rather hold firm to the principles that have guided Rome since its founding.
We are not just a people, but a civilization that has endured and flourished through the ages.
On this Ides of March, let us embrace the spirit of resilience and unity, and strive to forge a future that honors the greatness of Rome."
--Julius Caesar March 15th, 44BCE K5
