So, I had a disconcerting thought recently...We're all gonna die.
I don't mean that in a metaphysical, we all only have the time allotted to us, kind of way. I mean, we're all gonna die.
Whether it's Israel or Iran or , we're all dead. Soon.
And it's not that I fear for myself. I fear for my wife. And our unborn children. I've already resigned myself to the fact that I'll die before all of this is said and done. It's impossible for a man to love and fight for his country and still expect to come out unscathed at the other end. "Give me liberty or give me death!" as Patrick Henry famously said.
But what happens if we do get death? Am I condemning my family to a life of pauperism? Isn't the smart thing, as a family man, to go along to get along? To be a slave?
