So many comments here interpreting this in a negative way. Far more likely I think, it was inspired by a line in the Italian national anthem "siam pronti alla morte", i.e. talking about some cause that one would be willing to die for. Puts a different perspective on it, I think...

May 25, 2016

https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Grantviolin

I believe the indicator is that "pronto" is singular, so one person (I) is ready to die. I believe "They are ready to die" would require the plural "pronti".
