Philosophical Thoughts In Afghanistan
9/6/2011 5:35:30 AM    [ Flag as Spam or Inappropriate ]

My thoughts out here in Kabul and my brainstorming for my future and the future of my children. There needs to be a change, the routine for this age has gone on long enough and the negative results have been obvious. So how can we contribute to the change? What can we do?

Did you know that in some parts of the Congo, in some villages genocide is committed against entire populations of infants and toddlers? They are raped to death and their parents are forced to watch, or to participate in the violent act, lest they have their other children killed also? Our mission is to stay in Afghanistan now till we can bring stability to the land. Why? There are far worse places we should go to bring stability, and I would feel more honorable in doing so. Some of the people over here may have their issues, but they are saints in comparison to some other places in the world. If I have to leave my family for a year next time, send me to kill child rapists, and I will jump at the chance, don't send me to the middle east to sit at a desk and waste a year of my life away from my children and my wife. I am done with the hypocrisy. I am not fighting for the freedom of my nation now; I feel like a pawn serving a political agenda. I would have been proud in helping to take down those who attacked our nation, but I’m not doing that now; that’s been done. I feel undeserving of even what I have now, for I feel forced into slavery to provide for my family while serving in the Roman Legion.

Tell me what I need to hear every time; don't tell me what you think I want to hear. Don't pretend to care because you want to feel better about yourself, care because you truly do. I cannot grow in less I am able to receive correction, even from the humblest of sources, and neither can you.

L.L Brunk

“Words are magical, and without a word nothing can be invented, shared, or changed.”

L.L Brunk

“So many people these days feel completely comfortable saying, ‘I’m not a big reader’, or ‘I don’t like to read.’ It’s amazing but I don’t think they realize what they are truly saying. When did society start accepting this to be normal for one to declare “I’m not educated, I don’t want to be educated, and I don’t understand?”

L.L Brunk

“When somebody says, “I don’t like to read”, what they are really saying is “I am lazy and I don’t want to be educated.”

L.L Brunk

“If you want to do something for me, then do well for my children. I can receive no better gift.”

L.L Brunk

“With every choice I make I must ask myself if this will be in anyway harmful for my children now, or in their future.”

L.L Brunk

“Give me balance every time; balanced life with balance minded allies. The Government, Laws alone, and what the media tells you should be; this all crafts patterned behavior. People don’t question the patterned life; they just stand by and watch chaos gather momentum. In case you haven’t noticed yet the way things are being done is the wrong way. But go on and continue to follow just like the majority does. Watch the “global” debt continue to rise, be entertained by the talentless reality stars who inspire our children, and continue to have your vast ambition in life be something as simple as becoming rich. “They” who you allow to govern your lives; they don’t know what is best for you, for us. So it’s your time, our time, to take a stand. It’s time to change the pattern, for our children’s sake.”

L.L Brunk

“Give me balanced judgment, a balanced life, and stable minded allies... The Government; whom we placed our trust in for so long, the Laws alone which have not been enough, and what the media declares you should be and should want to be; these all craft our present routine behavior. We allow these purveyors to guide us, and to enslave us. People don’t question the patterned life spawned from what crafts the routine. They just stand by and watch the chaos gather momentum...

L.L Brunk

If you truly love somebody why wouldn't you want to share the valuable truths you discover with them? Share your discoveries with those you care about and don't think about the risk. What risk?! If you care for the benefit of those you love you'll share hard truths. Give this a shot, if you're brave enough to discover who your real friends' are, and how much you really care about them.

L.L Brunk

"One can never aspire to be a great leader in less they've first learned the lessons of patience and humility which come from being a great servant."

L.L Brunk

"As a parent never say to yourself "I deserve better". But instead recognize that you don't deserve even what you have and then work for what you feel your children deserve."

L.L Brunk

"The best you can do in life is to help make your children better than you, and give them more opportunity then you had. This may be the closest you can get to saving the future, which your children may do just that."

L.L Brunk
