The Black Band

Last week was a tough one. Over 7 peace officers were killed on the line of duty. One was executed while pumping gas. What threatening manner did he present? Was he abusing his power? Was he thrashing people of a different race around? Was he shooting at people when he couldn’t gone hand-to-hand? No. He was pumping gas. Shot in the back of the head and fifteen more times. Clear sign of hate and rage. A Trooper in Louisiana stopped to assist what seemed like a motorist in need. What do you think ran through his mind? That he could possibly die? That the person was waiting to ambush him? Without even thinking he was going to assist someone who he thought was in need of assistance not knowing about the persons race, social class, or criminal history. Instead he got repaid with his life being taken with the last words he possibly heard was “You’re lucky you are going to die.” Here in Michigan I had to wear the black band on my badge for …

Life Journey To Something New

I’ve been super duper neglectful of this blog. I know that people have been waiting patiently (or have lost patience) for me to write something on here. Even if it’s just a paragraph explaining why I’m gone. Hopefully this long (maybe long) post will explain most of it. I’ve been on a “Life Searching” moment. Trying to find some reason for everyday to exist. I don’t know why but lately I’ve been kind of moping to myself about how life is just slowly wasting away to our ultimate fate and I am doing nothing about it. I just sit on the couch and just slowly watch time go by. I wake up then just go to bed with no substance in the middle during the day. One day it actually got so bad I just got up and went to work to work on a training tool we have. I think it all finally hit a climax on April Fool’s day. Speaking of which… Girls… Never EVER joke about being pregnant with your man. Worst heart stopping …

Point Me That Way

I’ve always dreamed of going back to Korea. Last time I was there (years and years ago) I was with a good friend of mine. My buddy is Korean and was adopted by a Russian family (so cool!) and always wanted to go to his birth place. So he and I talked to my mom in taking us to Korea for our senior trip when we were in high school. When we both found out we were going we were really excited. The last time I went to Korea prior to that senior trip was probably when I was in elementary school. So it’s been a while since I last went. Our plane landed at the international airport in Incheon, Korea. Reality hit of how much of war still exists in a very well-developed country. We walked around the airport for a bit while waiting for our ride to our destination. Despite the beautiful architecture there were still heavily armed guards walking around. they had automatic weapons slung on their backs with lots and lots …

Like The Movies

I don’t know why I haven’t really mentioned my true fear. My biggest, greatest, and most haunting fear ever. I talk so much about life, love, relationships and anything else in between. I guess I’ve always just been so caught up with what ever I may be going through. But I never mention this fear with anyone. It’s been my very most kept secret between me and literally my dog. I guess this true fear of mine really hit me hard when my girlfriend and I had a conversation kind of relating to it. My biggest fear is dying. Seems pretty typical. No one wants to die. Life, as crappy as it can be at times, is the best thing ever. Maybe to a lot of people its just literally something that is of an annoyance. Maybe to some it’s the best thing ever. Me? I’m just so afraid of it cutting to a black screen so suddenly. Ever since I was a kid (when I first experienced a death of a family member) I …
