Symbolism of the Gold Bullet Pendant
“I’m not hurt at all. Didn’t you know? They can only kill me with a golden bullet.”
T.E. Lawrence in Lawrence of Arabia.
It is a tradition in the US Marine Corps that a sniper who kills an enemy sniper wears the bullet chambered in their weapon – the bullet that was destined to take that sniper’s life, a golden bullet.
Worn by modern warriors as a talisman for protection, and as a reminder to face challenges head on.
