Hey man... You Coming?

***Trav walks up to fox hole, kneels down and peers in…***

"Psssst Hey! You! Yea you! I am talking to you! What the hell are you doing in here? You can’t sit your ass in there all day! You can’t hide in there like that! Come on... ya gotta go forward... ya wanna be moving forward. That’s the only way to victory.

Doesn’t that foxhole stink? Filled with the smell of sweat, tears and fear? Aren’t you tired of cowering in this dank little hole, hoping things will get better while hell falls down around you and gets your range? I’d crawl down in there with ya but um…. No thanks. The sun is brighter out here, the air fresher and I can move. See, here is what I am going to do. I am going to move forward. Man, I really don’t want you to stay here but dang it, I can’t make you crawl out.

See, I know you feel safe in there because I’ve felt safe in my own foxhole when the shelling starts. Problem is, you can only dodge the shit that is incoming for so long. Forward is the answer. Momentum is a must. Surely you can’t get any of either crouched down in a dark little hole like that.

Yea, the fight sucks bad man, I know. It’s no fun getting shot at, shelled or watching your buddies fall to the enemy, but right now, right this very minute, we have the chance to move forward. I want you to go with me. It may not be much and we may not cover much ground but the farther we are from were you are cowering, the farther forward we have moved. That means we have won a small battle and we are that much closer to victory.

I am gonna go now. There isn’t time to waste. We gotta move forward man.

You coming?"

Never, never, never, never give up! Sir Winston Churchill

Cowering in a foxhole is not the way to win the battle, the war. Good post Trav! A good reminder!
