    Default Sorrow For My Wounds? Go Elsewhere.

    Thursday, 27 December 2007

    A Navy SEAL lieutenant was shot through the face in Afghanistan. Recovering with surgeries in a hospital, he has hung a sign on his door so inspiring and so positive that we are compelled to find the man and meet his optimism. The sign on the wall reads:


    Attention to all who enter here. If you are coming into this room with sorrow or to feel sorry for my wounds, go elsewhere. The wounds I received I got doing a job I love, doing it for people I love, supporting the freedom of a country I deeply love. I am incredibly tough and will make a full recovery. What is full? That is the utmost physically my body has the ability to recover. Then I will push that about 20% further through sheer mental tenacity. This room you are about to enter is a room of fun, optimism, and intense rapid regrowth. If you are not prepared for that, go elsewhere. - The Management

    i'm sure he's already getting phone calls and that this little story is all about setting the table for that new career...those speakers get big bucks...hopefully he'll parlay his experience into something because if I got shot in the face for any reason, I'd be pretty pissed off...a few million in the bank could ease the tension though..
