That is why it is better to have your name starts with letter
Thank you for that.
Never apologize for that brother.
That’s an excellent glimpse into the the lives of men who made what we have today at all possible.
Now is the time for men like that to rise again, we will need extraordinary men and women for what’s coming.
Needed to be said.
The article hit my “Hale Button”.
I’m still just stunned that anyone - ANYONE - would include Kurt Cobain and the word “hero” anywhere near each other.
Just simply brain-numbing stupid to me...
I've heard of two of the three. The biggest accomplishment of each of them was suicide. Who's the third dude, and did he off himself?
Cornell was the singer for Soundgarden, a 90s band, Temple pf the Dog, and Audioslave. Had a great rock voice.
Suicide by hanging.
Thanks. Then the criteria for being a gen-X hero is a messy suicide? Do we need more gen-X heroes?
And also on that list of heroes, I’ll include every kid that went to Vietnam, that DIDN’T dodge the draft, that went there, did their duty to help those people, suffered through the bullshit they went through, then came home to the even worse bullshit they had to put up with from people who supposedly were their own countrymen.
And there are 58,000+ names of heroes are on the Wall.
They’re all Heroes to me, too. They deserve all the praise, support, help, and admiration that a grateful Nation could possibly bestow, and they sure as Hell did NOT deserve to be treated so shabbily.
Had I been old enough, I’d have gladly punched a hippie in the mouth if I’d heard them bad-mouthing and abusing our returning servicemen.
Like I said... they have a pretty low bar for what constitutes a hero.
I’m surprised that took so long to show up.
Guess what, guys. You really AREN’T going to live forever.
If you don’t already know Jesus, go and seek Him out.
I can almost picture it.
He says to you, “Babe, I have I have this secret to share with you. I have been carrying this burden for so long, but I think that it is time for you to know...”
Nope. Not here. I never watched an episode of that retarded show.
I think I liked him in that movie where he played Tuff Hedimen. Bull riding.
“Sorry for the rant. This article just struck a raw nerve.”
I understand and enjoyed your ‘rant’. My father was one of those also. WW2 Captain. Never met a more humble man, beloved by everyone he touched, yet I took him for granted in my youth and later grew to fully appreciate him as a hero to me as I matured.
Lost him six years ago to cancer but I’m grateful for every year I had him with me.
