Just listen. Don’t walk away or change the subject or act like you didn’t hear what you did.

On the afternoon of April 13, a crowd of at least 10,000 men, women, and children gathered in an open space known as the Jallianwalla Bagh, which was nearly completely enclosed by walls and had only one exit. It is not clear how many people there were protesters who were defying the ban on public meetings and how many had come to the city from the surrounding region to celebrate Baisakhi, a spring festival. Dyer and his soldiers arrived and sealed off the exit. Without warning, the troops opened fire on the crowd, reportedly shooting hundreds of rounds until they ran out of ammunition. It is not certain how many died in the bloodbath, but, according to one official report, an estimated 379 people were killed, and about 1,200 more were wounded. After they ceased firing, the troops immediately withdrew from the place, leaving behind the dead and wounded. #jallianwalabagh #freedom 🙏🏻🙏🏻🙏🏻 #indiafre #satnamwaheguruੴ #jalianwalabagh #freedomisntfree #martyrs #statue #punjabi #punjab #passionpassport #ranglapunjab #india #passportready #punjabi_virsa #spiritual #travelogywithgaganzandtejas #travelholic #mytravelgram #explore #travelgram #traveladdict #globetrotter #traveler #explore #travelislife #traveldiary #theglobewanderer

When you're an unbearable combination of angry and hurt, you hit the bar. No punching bags so my next outlet is lifting as heavy as I can. Burn it out. 215# 🔸 I've always been the friend or the volunteer helping someone get through a loss or trauma. No joke, my inbox looks like therapy sessions. It's a different beast waking up to news that someone you know was killed in a suicide bomber attack. Shannon was a firecracker. She had a drive to help those around her and she fought for change. A recent change that may have put her there to counsel women serving. The war is far from over. #freedomisntfree #supportourtroops #military #spartan40 #unstoppable #mentalhealth

When you engage in "groupthinking," you usually demonstrate some psychological "symptoms." 👀#groupthink Some of those symptoms include: the absence of your own creative, rational and critical thinking; overestimating the power and morality of the group; engaging in stereotyping and close-mindedness; believing in the values and "rightness" of the group's beliefs and a diminution of creative thinking unique to you. It starts with little compromises and ends in calamity. How cognisant of you about areas of your life where you go along instead of standing your ground? #creativityplus #creativecatalyst #creativityplusintuition #criticalthinking #deepthoughts #deepthinking #innovations #socialinnovation #dontsayit #thinktwice #independence #independentthinker #thinkingdeep #beattoyourowndrum #standyourground #resist #resistance #freedomthinkers #freedomisntfree #neweracap #standout #standoutfromthecrowd #freethinker #criticalthinking #creativethinking #theoriginals #originals

I found myself writing this after the most recent loss to the TACP community in the last few hours. It isn’t a subtle cry for help, simply a record of internal observations, resultant of a career, coming to a close. I have probably experienced or been exposed to more death than many, but not as much as some. I have been remarkably fortunate that I have never been on a mission where anyone on my team has died. Injured, sure. Dead. No. I have witnessed it happen to the enemy. I have willfully and violently contributed to those deaths while the indiscriminate hand of death itself, ruptured the veil of my own immortality, just inches from my face. It has always been around me, but I have never been in it. I have never held it. The only dead bodies on our helicopters were those of the enemy. It keeps happening though. My friends, teammates and brothers keep dying. Jared, Brad, Ray, Joe, Gus, CT, DG, GC, Timmy… The whole list is decidedly longer than this and continues to grow, almost by the month, it seems. My dad died when I was 12 and my brother killed himself in my mid 20’s. I do not feel those two deaths like I feel the ones listed here. Jared was my forward observer in Afghanistan in 2004. He died in combat in 2006. I always wonder if I could have prevented his death if I had been there. I think I could have. The rest were also killed in combat, killed in training or killed themselves. The further I get away from the literal fight, the more scared I am that I will stop feeling as affected by these losses as I do today. I worry that I won’t even have a claim or the right to be affected, and instead be relegated to the realm of the disaffected observer, or worse, viewed as an imposter. It is odd to hold death so close. But perhaps it helps us live, so that we do not dishonor the sacrifice they made. Perhaps it’s only fair. Perhaps we live because we understand the inevitability of dying.

I also took a few moments to remember our service members who lost their lives in Syria yesterday and to pray for their families. . Please don’t forget that you can go to the gym every day if you want because of what our brave men and women are doing for us in faraway foreign countries risking their lives for our freedom. . #freedomisntfree #rememberourfallen #rememberourheroes #health #neverquit #nevergiveup #strongmind #strongbody #strongspirit #mindset #bodymindspirit #mindtraining #renewyourmind #positivevibes #battlefieldofthemind #fightthegoodfightoffaith #girduptheloinsofyourmind #staystrong #fitnessjourney #fitnessastherapy #fitnessmotivation #takecareofyourself #takecareofyourtemple #bodybuilding #gymlife

There were no cops, no politicians, no Mom's Demand to stop the bad guy with an AK from shooting up the club on New Year's Eve. A armed citizen with a handgun potentially saved lives that night. YOU ARE ON YOUR OWN. Gun Control didn't stop the country's first mass shooting, it didn't stop the last mass shooting and gun control will not stop the next mass shooting. Gun control isn't about common sense, it's about controlling people.

Authority is not some stealth game you’ve to hold your breath for. Remember, the most important authority you’ve at any point of time in life, is.. The TRUTH No matter what anyone says, if you’ve your truth backed up by proof, conviction, passionate curiosity and enough belief.. You’ve got the authority Everything else just flows from that And if you can’t do that, the aid must be taken. And for the past few years, I’ve been working for you and myself to install automatic authority. So if you’ve been struggling to clear inner blocks.. ..stopping you from expressing your inner authority. You gotta join the rush of action takers.. Who have claimed their free gift 🎁 You can enter your email address so I can send your free gift directly into your inbox. And remember, it’s going to take at least a month to completely free you from those blocks. So you gotta be patient with this. See you slaying your darlings inside - @achintbhagat For more Badass content you can’t afford to miss out on, follow @insta_determination

Being resilient should not become a mindset or lifestyle..it’s a skill used during challenging times or when necessary. Are you living the best quality of life possible? Are you putting yourself first? Are you celebrating yourself?

A lot of truth here... Repost from @edsmanifesto So much to unpack in these images. From the need to know about ballistics, cover vs concealment , endemic weapons familiarization, auster medical management In a foreign country, profiling and terrorist modus ( @yousefbadou_emergence ) ... The need is very real in our day and age of you plan to travel. Also, in our current anti firearm political climate. Notice how the unarmed and armed individuals interact with each other. All it takes to be a victim is not having the ability to defend your self and your family... Any one that limits this ability is violating your human rights. Not being allowed and not being able are to different things. Stillness is death. - Ed

"Those who say that we are in a time when there are no heroes, just don't know where to look. The sloping hills of Arlington National Cemetery with its row on row of simple white markers bearing crosses or Stars of David. They add up to only a tiny fraction of the price that has been paid for our freedom. Each one of those markers is a monument to the kinds of hero I spoke of earlier. Their lives ended in places called Belleau Wood, The Argonne, Omaha Beach, Salerno and halfway around the world on Guadalcanal, Tarawa, Pork Chop Hill, the Chosin Reservoir, [Fallujah, Camp Keating, Korengal Valley] and in a hundred rice paddies and jungles of a place called Vietnam." - Ronald Reagan Thank you for your service and sacrifice in defense of freedom and liberty! . . . #freedom #liberty #freedomisntfree #arlingtonnationalcemetery #service #defendingfreedom #usarmy #usmc #usaf #usnavy #sacrifice #grateful #thankful #appreciation #thankyouforyourservice #military #militarygratitude #operationiraqifreedom #deploymenthomecoming

#tbt to Memorial Day in Cohasset, MA courtesy of newsletter subscriber Robert R. Somehow Memorial Day is already right around the corner now 🇺🇸

There are and will be times that we do not want the rest of our lives. The problem for us is our lives were never our own, not truly. We lived our lives for the nation, for our families, for our brothers in arms, for the ideal of America, for our God. The reason we felt so purposeful in combat was because of the number of lives we were impacting for a better future. The good news is that we can still do all of those things. Oh, it is not the same as taking on ISIS and freeing a village of that ilk, but in the larger picture what we do now has the potential to be more impactful and for much longer than the battle we are so proud to have been a part of. Please do not waste that. The rest of life will take amazing turns for you, but only if you let it. Those turns will not always be good, but the good ones can have a way of making the bad ones seem worth the price of admission; again, you have to let that happen. You cannot isolate. Things look worse in your own head. You need another trusted perspective. Find some other veterans that you feel safe with. Let them know how you feel about life. Work it out together just like we did for training scenarios. Don’t abandon what you know works because the terrain looks a little different on this side of the uniform. See yourself as mission critical personnel. I guarantee you that the other folks in your life do. You cannot do this alone. If you cannot talk to anyone else, then talk to us or the author. Get involved in something. Possibilities present themselves once you start pressing the attack. Do not assume that the way it is now is the way it always has to be. Read the rest linked in our profile.

If the life you have with Jesus does not feel more free than the life you had before Jesus… ✋You're doing it wrong. This is one I’ve had to learn the hard way. Freedom does not mean: ❌ Having no boundaries ❌ Avoiding all structure ❌ Letting your eyes, heart, and thoughts wander wherever they might want to go Jesus’ version of freedom: ✔️ Understands that boundaries enable (not limit) your freedom ✔️ Embraces training because that is the only way to attain the crown (1 Cor 9:25) ✔️ Pushes you to fill yourself with the praiseworthy (Phil 4:8) Jesus’ freedom is available, but it is not easy. The only way to enjoy His freedom is to pursue His freedom. The only way to live your freest life is to stop living it entirely on your terms. 🙌 God’s Way > Our Way
