Or Dr. Joy-Bro. 🙂
The college Viking is more true than we want to accept. The new generation despite that they lift weights, get tattoos, drink like a sailor on a Saturday night and watch every bloodletting TV show……. are in truth ……….very vulnerable. Sorry about that, but it’s true. Even trained hardened soldiers are coming home and suffering and dying at their own hand because they discovered they can’t deal with reality. Blood really does smell……you never get use to carnage and the various forms to look at and absorb…..and the smell of a long stagnant corpse will stay with you for a lifetime.
I don’t know how we did it….survived that is. We were brought up that like it or not violence is part of life…..that you had to stand up for yourself even if it meant pain went with it. You didn’t run to a counsellor when you had problems at home or your girlfriend ditched you or you didn’t get the job you wanted. Many of us lived around animals and we came to know both joy and death and that stabilized us for later life. We went to school where teachers took no crap and you learned you couldn’t just do whatever you wanted. The new generation is protected from everything from violence to germs and that is not teaching them anything or helping them later in life.
Right now there is a TV talk show on and they are talking about ””sadness””’. Here’s a new bulletin……sadness is part of life. Personally I wonder if all this talking about sadness and other problems just exasperates them and allows people to float in their problems so it almost becomes a regular part of life. I’m not trying to be cruel and I know there are people out there with a lot of real problems but I think for a majority of people all they need is to go out, do something and put down that frikken phone! A long time ago I knew a doctor who said “people ””think”” too much and don’t ””do”’ enough”.
I agree with you, I don’t know how we survived. I was taught to, “Deal with it.” When I got beat up and my parents would ask, “What are you going to do about it? ” Black eyes, split lips it was part of growing up. Skinned knees, cut arms, a broken nose were part of life. I learned to take care of business as needed at a young age. I was brought up to not need people in my life, but to choose the people I wanted in my life. A big difference. Sometimes you choose wrong and it becomes a life lesson learned all by yourself.
Somebody dies in a bad accident and 500 strangers show up at the funeral. Why? They didn’t know the person.
I had to put our newest lizard, Dragos, down as he was in a lot poorer health than we first realized. It turns out that the place we got them is a horror house for animals/reptiles. She has been reported to the OSPCA. I have 6 snakes and 3 other lizards that I have to worry about and protect. So I put him down, quickly. Not fun but necessary. I was taught to be realistic and to not allow suffering for a pet, or any animal if I could help it. You do what you have to do.
So in closing, I say to the world…”BOO”, even if I’m not an intimidating viking. I’m more like the Pillsbury dough-boy without the hat. 🙂
I love the bear picture, he/she is just sitting there thinking about if he/she should eat fish or berries for dinner. The bear looks like it had a rough day and needed to rest. 🙂
I had an interesting experience with someone saying “Boo!” one time when I was an aide. Long story short, special needs adults on an outing with us aides/teacher waiting for the bus to come. One student loves the word boo. The Brinks armor truck rolls up as the guard walks by the student says boo! The guard reaches for his gun, but looks at who said boo! The guard shakes his head, smiles and go into the mall. One aide tells the student you could have gotten us shot! Student replies uh ah. *shakes my head*
Have a good one,
