I have a friend that for a while always called me sheepdog. I asked him why he always called me that and said to me "carry on sheepdog". He sent this to me as for his reason why he did so.

 

By LTC Dave Grossman, Army Ranger and author of "On Killing" he actually got this from a Vietnam veteran.

Most of the people in our society are sheep. they are kind, gentle, productive creatures who can only hurt one another by accident. Then there are the wolves. The wolves feed on the sheep without mercy. There are evil men in this world and they are capable of evil deeds. The moment you forget that or pretend it is not so, you became a sheep. There is no safety in denial.

Then there are sheepdogs. They live to protect the flock and confront the wolf. If you have no capacity for violence then you are a healthy productive citizen, a sheep. If you have a capacity for violence and no empathy for your fellow citizens, then you are a wolf. But, if you have a capacity for violence, and a deep regard for your fellow citizens, you are a sheepdog, a warrior, someone who is walking the hero's path. Someone who can walk into the heart of darkness and walk out.

We know the sheep live in denial, that's what makes them sheep. They do not want to believe that there is evil in the world.

The sheep generally do not like the sheepdog. He looks and acts a lot like the wolf. He has fangs and the capacity for violence. The difference, though, is that the sheepdog must not, can not and will not ever harm the sheep. Any sheepdog who intentionally harms the lowliest little lamb will be punished and removed.

Still the sheepdog disturbs the sheep. he or she is a constant reminder that there are wolves ready to attack. The sheep would prefer that the sheepdog didn't tell them where to go, or give them tickets, or stand at the ready in our towns, airports, or highways.

Until the wolf shows up. Then the entire flock tries desperately to hide behind on lonely sheepdog. this how the sheep feel about their sheepdog when the wolf is at the door.

Understand that there is nothing morally superior about being a sheepdog. It is just what you choose to be. Also understand that a sheepdog is a funny critter: He or she is always sniffing around out on the perimeter, checking the breeze, barking at things that go bump in the night, and most of all yarning for a righteous battle. That is...the young sheepdogs yearn for a righteous battle. The old sheepdogs are a little older and wiser, but they move to the sound of the guns when needed right along with the young ones.

Here is how the sheep and the sheepdog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come to their door, but the sheepdog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said. "Thank God I wasn't on one of those planes." The sheepdog, the warriors said, "Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference.

If you want to be a sheep, then you can be a sheep and that's OK, but you must understand the price you pay. When the wolf comes, you and your loved ones are going to die if there is not sheepdog there to protect you. If you want to be a wolf, you can be one, but the sheepdogs are going to hunt you down and you will never rest. If you want to be a sheepdog and walk the warrior's path, then you must make a conscious and moral decision every day to dedicate and prepare yourself to thrive in that moment when the wolf comes knocking at the door.

For example, many sheepdogs carry their weapons in church and that's OK. Some sheep would be horrified if they knew you were carrying a weapon in church, they might call him or her paranoid and would probably scorn him or her. The sheep response to the wolf is denial, all too often their response the the sheepdog is scorn and disdain. It is denial that turns people into sheep. Sheep are psychologically destroyed by combat when the wolf shows up.

So the warrior must thrive to confront denial in all aspects of his and her life, and prepare themselves for the day when evil comes.

You are a warrior who is authorized to carry a weapon. If you step outside without that weapon, then you become a sheep pretending that the wolf will not come today.

Carry on Sheepdog.

"And shepards we shall be for Thee. Power hath descended forth from thy hand. Our feet may swiftly carry out Thy commands. So we shall flow a river fourth to Thee And teeming with souls shall it be. In Nomeni Patri Et Fili Spiritus Sancti."

"And when I vest my flashing sword And my hand takes hold in judgement I will take vengence upon mine enemies And I will repay those who hase me O Lord, raise me to they right hand And count me umoung Thy saints"

"Whosoever shed last blood. By man shall his blood be shed. For immunity of God make he the man. Destroy all that which is evil, So that which is good may flourish. And I shall count thee amoung my favored sheep. And you shall have the protection of all the angels in Heaven."

"Never shall innocent blood be shed. Yet the blood of the wicked shall flow like a river. The three shall spread their blackened wings and be the vengful striking hammer of God."

Even though im being somewhat of an ass on here, i do think all my friends and family should check out this song. I know some have heard it, but i think if your in a relationship and you care alot about that person your with, that this song might fit for you. who knows what i think, i guess its just the hopeless romantic in me that i dont let out much.    http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vSM8tF10ibw&NR=1

if you have a boyfriend or are married and you come to my page wanting something or hinting for something, just move on. i am no longer giving stuff to people just to be blown off. i have done more then enough for people on here. ask your hubby or boyfriend to buy it for you.

lyrics to brad paisley's song "I Thought I Loved You Then"

I remember trying not to stare the night that I first met you
You had me memorized
3 weeks later in the front porch light taking 45 min to kiss you goodnight
I hadn’t told you yet but I thought I loved you then

Chorus
Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like the river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I remember taking you back to right where I first met you
You were so surprised
There were people around
But I didn’t care I got down on one knee right there
And once again I thought I loved you then

Chorus
Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Like the river meets the sea
Stronger than it’s ever been
We’ve come so far since that day
And I thought I loved you then.

I can just see you with a baby on the way
I can just see you when your hair is turning gray
What I can’t see is how I’m ever gonna love you more
But I’ve said that before.

Now you’re my whole life now you’re my whole world
I just can’t believe the way I feel about you girl
Well look back some day at this moment that we’re in
And will look back and say and I thought I loved you then
And I thought I loved you then...

today i had a couple drinks with my buddies that are here with me. i started wondering about what is appealing and unappealing about me. i talked to a couple ex's and got some feed back. one said she couldnt find anything unappealing about me. the other said i was unappealing in the fact that i had a military dick attitude. she also said i was appealing in that i had great eyes and that i was charming.

Feel free to let me know what you think.

I went and talked to a couple people today about getting deployed. I can pretty much get on any deployment i want. I just have to give them the word and i will be gone. The only thing i have to decide on is where and what type of deployment i want. If i go to the one place i havent been to yet, i will do the same thing i did the 2nd time i was in iraq.I'm still trying to decide what i wanna do.

The songs on my playlist are ones i like a lot. The 1st song i have no idea why i like it so much.The 2nd song on there is for all my friends and family.The 5th song is for my brothers and sisters in arms. The 7th makes me think of my days in iraq looking for IED's.The 8th song someone once told me the song reminds them of me. I know nobody really cares the reasons of why i have them but i dont care, its my page.
Grrr!If you want me you know how to reach me
