Look gang, you got to look out for one another. Like within the Marine Corps we take care of our own. If you have the ability to help somebody and you don’t, you are wrong. Now I’m not saying let them take you for everything.
Sometimes tough love is the best kind of love and sometimes you have to let them figure things out on their own. But when they hit rock bottom, they want your help and actually need it and you can help then even if that means just listening, you need to.
Generally good people do this because they care enough to do it. America does this by sending its military to help those less fortunate. Because we have the assets and resources to make a difference and we care and we do so without asking anything in return. Sometimes it costs American lives. We are one of the few countries to go to lengths that we do to help others. It’s the traditional battle of good and evil. Bad guys always loose. Maybe some will not want your help and that’s fine. Stand off until they do and usually after time goes by they will ask for it or you will know they need it. Be it a country or struggling relative it can be painful to watch them go down a road you know that is going to most likely end bad but in some situations people have to hit rock bottom or countries have to be in total chaos, then they send in the Marines.
Don’t regret it
Don’t let a situation pass you by and after it passes you think to yourself, hmm I should have helped them. You will regret not helping them. I often stop to help someone with car problems. I usually scare the hell out of them on accident because they arnt use to people stopping but I offer to help because I usually have tools with me and can most likely figure out basic issues with their car and also I have changed a billion tires. I’ve even passed a stranded motorist and turned around because I regretted not helping them. YOU may be and have the one thing they need, help.
Back in the day, Frank Buckles helped people. It was called World War I (WWI) sad when younger & I mean teenagers when I say young when asked what WWI is they think it means something to do with Wii. Will we forget WWI? Frank Buckles was the last surviving person to serve in WWI. He had a birthday here on Feb 2nd as we wrote in this post.
Now that he has passed at the age of 110 I know he helped alot of people in his life time and Im sure never regretted it. We need to remember warriors like Frank Buckles and those that came long before us that made a difference to America. We shall never forget WWI and those that made a difference and helped the world. I hope when I’m long gone they don’t forget OIF and OEF and the difference we made there.
Below are some we should never forget that helped.
