One of the most scary things for me about his election, judging by the protests and the comments by young people, is that we have raised a whole generation of children who do not know how to lose. Possibly having never even experienced it.
That sinking feeling after you lose the big one should be what motivates you not frightens you. I have seen the words terrified and horrified used so loosely in the last few days that I have to wonder if the users have truly ever really experienced those emotions.
You know there is more than a grain of truth in the old Knute Rockne slogan.. “When the going gets tough, the tough get going” which is rather appropriately defined, giving he content of this post, by Wikipedia on the internet as, ” “Those who act tough and proud will vacate a situation when it becomes difficult lest they be proven not as tough as they appear to be.” God Help Us, the perfect illustration of how words have replace action and everything’s OK.
