“The object of war is not to die for your country but to make the other guy die for his.” ― George S. Patton Jr.
“To die for one’s beliefs is indeed a noble touch
To live for them is better and it doesn’t hurt as much” ― Terence Chua
Once you become a casualty, you are a liability to your family. They have to choose between escaping and trying to save you. So not becoming a casualty isn’t just a good idea, it’s an obligation to your dependents. Prepare for such eventualities as may be mitigated by prompt action. While the men who shielded their girlfriends from bullets in Aurora, CO are heroes, they’d have been happier being live heroes. Pity they would have had to break local laws to survive.
