“A Coward dies a thousand times before his death, but the valiant only taste of death but once.”
William Shakespeare from Julius Caesar
It is articles like this one from the Federalist that remind me why I don’t watch the news on T.V. anymore. I would much rather go online and pick and choose what I read about, that way I won’t get nauseated as fast, and typically can make it about 20 minutes before having to stop. Seriously. True Story.
This story also reminds me why I don’t live in urban areas anymore. I will spare you my reasoning on that.
But getting to the nuts and bolts of this story: There is a difference in teaching people about self-preservation and being “street smart” and just being an outright coward who cowers in a corner while some asshole murders another person in cold blood and then robs everybody, including you. C’mon people. What are we teaching our children? moreover, what are we saying about ourselves as a society to the world as a whole? You can rob, kill, rape, just don’t do it to me? Pitiful stuff guys, just plain pitiful.
I leave you with this thought, and as such, a prediction for the future of America:
“This country was not established by Cowards, and Cowards shall not Preserve it.”
