The above headline RELATES To MORE THAN “a simple story”. Below I listed the article for you to read, and then I write my true story “of Sadness”.
Reminds me of a COUSIN ———- Many years ago, one of my cousins was getting married. To “CELEBRATE” just a day away from His Wedding, he decided to Do the Same Thing as These 2 “Little Kids”; Go on a Shooting Spree To Destroy Other People’s Hard Earned (and NEEDED) buildings, stores, and more.
My cousin was a VERY ACCOMPLISHED SLING SHOT EXPERT. He was “DEADLY” with it!!!!!! —— So what he did was this: One night after “having a few drinks”, he & a friend drove down the streets in a large college town SHOOTING OUT Dozens of EXPENSIVE STORE FRONT WINDOWS with his sling shot. He would likely have NEVER BEEN CAUGHT Except for the fact that a lady was literally “working through the night” in HER STORE on the front placing the mannequins and other materials for Her Biggest Sales Season where she NEEDS for Putting Food On The Table for her family!!!! She was standing finishing a mannequin when suddenly not only was her MASSIVE WINDOW SHATTERED , But The Mannequin’s Face Next To Her Was Destroyed. —— YES, the SLING SHOT Did Lot’s of Damage that night. The Lady was lucky enough to see the car, and see the license plate number. —– Very Early that same morning, my cousin was arrested. He was just bailed out of JAIL in time to “make his wedding”. ——————– HMMM, these guys in this article were “just sent home” HMMM ——–
Anyway, it was my aunt and uncle who bailed out their “great son” as they always called him. My Cousin NEVER AMOUNTED TO ANYTHING HIS WHOLE LIFE —- He Never Held a Job More Than “a little while” (But It NEVER “Was His Fault”, we were always told), he produced nothing but a bunch of kids, who most also have had similar lives, mirroring his). His Wife Besides Rising the Kids (or trying to – as it is “tough to teach anything”, when they see “it is OK to “be a waste”).
His parents (my aunt & uncle) ALWAYS WORKED LONG HOURS in many ventures for the most part, 7 days a week and NEVER HAD ANY MONEY —- Everyone Knew Where The Money Went. Many “eyes” saw them handing big sums over to “their great son” frequently! They continuously LOST Homes, Businesses (that actually were VERY PROFITABLE) and they “burned themselves out both physically and emotionally. They Died PENNILESS & BROKEN!!!!! The son still lives, as he has always been “good” at using people and “THE SYSTEM”. His family “an ever growing mess”!!!
The moral of the story: If You want your children and/or yourself to “be an ADULT, Be Productive, Be Kind, Considerate, Be Secure With Self Esteem and Self Confidence; in short “to be happy”, One MUST FACE LIFE & Learn About “Truth & Consequences” & Responsibility & Consequences”. —— Humans Have Run From These VALUABLE WORDS & CONCEPTS for Too Long. That is why our society and nation and world slips downward rather than rising to truly great!
—— Yep, by “giving with nothing expected in return” and “hiding faults” No One Helps ANYONE Ever!!!! My Aunt & Uncle “through their just giving and making excuses” RUINED my cousin’s life, his family’s life and MANY OTHER LIVES FOREVER.
—— To Truly Be Caring, One Must Show Strength To “Really LOVE Someone or Something”. Tough Love Is Not “TOUGH”, It Is REQUIRED For GROWTH!!!!! “It is Not My Fault” Is NO EXCUSE!!! Finger Pointing Is OK —- That is IF THE FINGER WAS POINTED AT “The Person In The Mirror”!!!!!!!!!!
Man will Always “Be Small” Till Man Dares To Live Up To The Highest Ethics & Beliefs Imagined!!!! —- Working Together to provide “further pushes upward” (rather than more “excuses”) can create greatness in us all!!!
