To: Shannon

Shannon, the man has a wife and children. There are times in our lives as men, we have to stuff what we would like to do, and remember who comes first. That man’s duty is to his family. I’m not going to fault the guy at all.

In his heart, that man is gratefull. At the scene, I’ll bet he made it very clear how he felt about it.

If you’ve every done something great for someone else, you don’t need to be thanked. It’s nice. In time you forget about it. You’d think that would be the one thing you’d never forget.

Instead it’s your moments of frailty that rise up and haunt you.

Amen! I am really itching for a fight here, but I would have done the same thing as this dad considering the size of the opposing force.

I have little ones that i worry about and I have backed away from some fights that I would have loved to fight too... (Irish)

“Shannon, the man has a wife and children.”

So did the founders. And they were in a lot more danfer doing what they did than this guy.

Seriously. Sometimes doing what is morally right is dangerous. That’s what makes men, Men.

The alternative is that the Black Pamper types win. And they just did. So what about the next time? And the next that always comes? Eventually someone has to man up.
