Some of you here that are local to the St Louis area may have heard this story on the news where a Town and Country man was confronted and beaten in his own front yard after getting home from work. They stole his car for the hood as they had a buyer. I had the occassion to speak to this man and he gives me a history of him being in the Navy and working the large guns on a ship. I think to myself, I says, ok self, ask him about where was his weapon. So I did. To my surprise he said, Oh, I dont have one of those, I would be scared to death to carry a gun. I couldnt go much further with the conservation as I was speaking to him associated to a employment endevor. I did ask if he was scared when he was being beaten by the two men. He replied yes he thought he was going to die. He said his wife heard him from inside and called 911. Took the police 5 minutes to get there. Life lesson ? I dont know if there is one. Some thoughts and beliefs people will literally take to their grave.
