The Sheep and The Sheepdogs"
The email you received originated (as far as I can determine) was published in a book by Lt. Col. Dave Grossman, entitled "ON Combat". On pg 176, 177, he tells of a conversation he had with a old retired Colonel from the Vietnam era. The old Colonel told him the story.
In essance 98% of the people run through their lives like sheep. Nothing to insult them, but they go through their life taking care of their kids, going to the mall; doing as they wish. They do not think of the wolf lurking around the ATM when the get the money as they often do.
The other 2% of the people are either sheep, or sheep dogs.
Sheep dogs look a lot like wolves to the sheep. The sheep don't like anything with hair and fangs. But, when the real wolf comes around, they hide behind the sheep dog.
So when you go out without your weapon, just say Baaah!
"ONn Combat" can be purchased at any of Grossman's seminars or at Amazon. It is a Most Execellent read..
Hope I helped.
