BEWARE - The Taking Of Your Life Is Not An Issue

When are we going to learn that it is not worth it?. We are no longer in the day of "shooting the one" and "may the best man win." Even when you think you have won; you've lost. Now the loser goes back and either comes back with a weapon or a gang of friends and relatives to beat you down because you "won." In too many instances the biggest loser is the winner, hence the story below.  Sometimes (probably most times) it's better to "shut up" and keep it moving.  It's not about being a "punk" or a "wuss," it's about being around to see another day.  Let's face it, it is no longer an issue that your life can be taken. Folks would just assume kill you now than look at you.  Also notice these things tend to happen in the wee hours of the morning, i.e. 2:00 a.m., 3:00 a.m., 4:00 a.m. etc. etc.  and are usually at some "party" or club.  Young people (and old), it's not like it was 30, 40, 50 and 60 years ago.  Lives are being taken senselessly.  Take my advice and be quiet, stay home and learn not to argue because it is not worth your life or mine. Use your head. As the old adage says, "The life you save may be your own."  Something else to critically think about.
