Re: Taking it Like a Man: by Paul Calloway
I am a hit taker. I used to take a hit and fall dead, but now I mix it up and get wounded too. Don't get me wrong, it's not about the drama or anything. Most of the time I'll go down out of the view of the people attending an event. Scores of men died and were wounded, I look at it as honoring their sacrifice. I can't imagine their pain, but if they were able to I'm sure they thought of home and loved ones. I do the same when I take a hit.
