Drop Bear – great post! I think we can all use a reminder to pay attention to everything we can (keeps the mind sharper too!) and then do our best to correlate those together to make sense of our personal surroundings and situations to be better prepared to make those thousands of decisions we make on a weekly basis that ultimately drives our lives. Being flexible is an important factor – we often create our own misery by not being flexible enough because we’ve created own idea of what we want and don’t want to change that unless we are forced to – when with a different mind set (flexible), we could have been better off in the long run.

Arms discourage and keep the invader and plunderer in awe, and preserve order in the world as well as property... mischief would ensue were the law-abiding deprived of the use of them.
