Young Men. . . . .

This intro leads us into an article of courage and honor. I would also like to add Koji’s link on a hero….


More tragic news about a school shooting in Oregon State yesterday. The shooter  was described as a loner, living with his mother, uncomfortable with people, and seen  wearying the same army clothes  day in and day out.  He shall remain nameless on my site.  He was 26 years old.

A commentator said that all, the too recent shooters, had one thing in common besides the guns, not personality or family situation, not  mental illness, but  all were in their late teens to  early to  mid 20s.

The shooter in Oregon is being investigated and his computer use is under scrutiny as I type, so enough about him.  My thoughts and prayers are for the survivors and families of the victims.

This situation made me think about two young men in the same age group with very different stories.   One is my brother George Tullidge whom some may remember. If…

  1. And now the stabbing in Sacramento. Too much crazy!


  2. A very disturbing reading, yet one which has to be told, here in Australia, we are experiencing the same lone shooter/wolf scenario with another case two weeks ago, and others opening up.
    The cause is one which I don’t like stating on Word press, but boils down to a perverted Ideology disguised as a Religion.

  3. Interesting that a mere corporal gets the Military Cross. Was a time when only officers got crosses, the hoi polloi had to make do with discs.

    (Or is my cynicism showing? Perhaps all ‘medals’ should be reissued as ‘crosses’ now; backdated to the year dot?)


  4. Nice re-blog. I too will never understand the media and the time they give to the nut jobs.

  5. Good post. It does make me wonder. Being young is fraught with dangers.


    • The no gun zones such as schools are open targets for nut cases like in Oregon – no one can shoot back. We were all young sometime, it is terrible that so many will not age.


  6. Another sad day in the USA. Good to read the links about the young man on D-Day, and the British Paratrooper too. Not all young men are destined to end up like the one in Oregon. He is the exception, fortunately.
    (The UK press and TV news are making much of the fact that the latest shooter was born here. I cannot really see the relevance, but they are obsessed with such connections.)
    Best wishes, Pete.

    • I’ll never understand the workings of the media mind – but it is ANYTHING for a story – that’s for sure. Frankly I oppose giving these people any air or web time at all. I think some of them do these horrific acts simply to be noticed, even if it is in death. Thank you for giving me your opinion, Pete.
