Thoughts on these "not at all" sensitive issues, and the accompanying "Picture Book" (or trailer) to my caveman rhetoric in "Un-Winnable Wars: Finding Victory in the Ashes".
Not all Wars are meant to be started. Not all Wars are meant to be fought. Not all Wars are meant to be won. But all Wars are meant to deliver "Hard-fought Wisdom". There is no better time than the "Now" to start finding the hidden victories in the ashes of the war(s) you (we) are fighting.
Un-Winnable Wars: Finding Victory in the Ashes of Defeat, reflects on the victory eventually found in the deep and dark ashes of the Vietnam War. If found there, what lies before us.
From the Dedication (click below for the TF 300-inspired action video trailer): “In a period of multiple “problems” manifesting at a single point of time, our perception of others working just as hard to solve another “problem” might be distorted.
I am less concerned with finding who is to blame for where we are and more concerned with finding the path back to exceptionalism. Not just for America, but for anyone willing to attack obstacles in the way of life rather than spend all efforts avoiding them.
Those obstacles provide opportunities for growth and the ability to “creatively think” our way through difficult situations…
'The Obstacle is the Way.'”’
