Wear your attitude on your sleeve
So is it bad if I am already finding it a little difficult to have blog-appropriate things to write about? It has been an extremely busy time here over the last couple of weeks. Some big challenges and some big rewards alike have presented themselves. Since the sun is so incredibly hot here, and my nose shouldn’t stand too many more sunburns, I was searching online for a good hat. Copying a fellow respected soldier in the camp, I looked into the ‘Pipe Hitter’s Union’ website. The quote on the opening page says this: “Good people sleep peacefully in their beds at night because rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf.” Their creed?
1. Wear your attitude on your sleeve.
2. Give One Hundred Ten Percent in Everything you do.
3. Watch out for your brothers.
Sometimes soldiers struggle to see the point in what we do. The reward for doing what we do here seems slightly superficial, except when I think of my family and friends sleeping peacefully in their beds. Although I am one small person, a wise woman once told me that it takes one plus one plus one person to make up a strong fighting force that makes a difference in the world that we live in. And it’s all worth it.
