“Break bread and drink wine all you want with others but when it’s go time, make sure you can shed blood with me.”~Michael Kurcina
My view on this has matured over the decades. As a reckless youth I was more than willing to wait in the bushes with a hammer to do my business for the wrong reasons, and as a man that loves life and loves others we must preserve life as much as we can, until we can preserve it no longer. We are supposed to be the peace makers sometimes even when someone is spitting in our face. It isn’t easy to walk away. Be careful getting caught up in someone else’s schemes and into difficult circumstances that can change your life in a heartbeat be you a soldier, peace officer or Joe citizen. Of course rules change depending on so many factors but your values should remain the same. If you’re going to shed blood well my advice is it better be for a very very good reason, even if it’s to give a man a nose bleed. Lots of good people got ensnared by their hot-headed bros and they found their desired level of freedom didn’t exist behind prison bars. On that same note I’ve been with people who talked a lot of talk and when it came to GO TIME they were petrified into inaction.
Proverbs 1:10-15 10 My son, if sinful men entice you, do not give in to them.
11 If they say, “Come along with us; let’s lie in wait for innocent blood, let’s ambush some harmless soul;
12 let’s swallow them alive, like the grave, and whole, like those who go down to the pit;
13 we will get all sorts of valuable things and fill our houses with plunder;
14 cast lots with us; we will all share the loot”—
15 my son, do not go along with them, do not set foot on their paths;
