Discussion in 'Boston Bruins' started by Fenway, May 13, 2020.
i was happy to see they got it right.
Worth the wait IMO.
I truly hope the league is ready to have the hard conversations that need to be had.
I'm hoping more of the guys issue statements like Z did.
Jonathan Toews stuns the hockey world with a stirring call to arms
Incredibly well said by Toews
I thought so.
Bryan Lyons, who pushed Rick Hoyt in the Boston Marathon since 2015, dies at 50 - The Boston Globe
Guess I'm not even allowed to say a simple goodbye.
it doesn’t happen enough imo, but they did here. Well done Bruins.
I appreciate their statement, but a little (or any) action would go a whole lot further.
We live in a ****ed up materialistic society with both ends of the spectrum no longer having any real measure of acceptable behavior. In the middle we have those trying to get by and teach the meaning of effort and persistence but it is getting harder by the day. It all starts with 2 things IMO - 1 is the repeated lie that we all deserve things without having to put the effort and commit into driving outcomes. 2 is the repeated lie that we live in an egalitarian society that gives everyone the same chances. you can't solve either as a standalone - only together. It's going to be a very long road to fix those 2 issues which are so deeply engrained into the American psyche since the 70's.... there is no precedence in any historical record of society teaching of values replacing family teaching of values so a lot of this comes down to families teaching their children to persevere and do the right thing - it may take a generation but it all starts there. A lot can be said about this life lesson irrespective of origins and situation :
It's up to each parent of each kid - protest and hats off; pick up a brick and slap you into tomorrow. Enough is enough and no more excuses for stupid kids and absent parents. We need to teach them, not enable them to think the rules apply only to others (which is the very reason we have this police brutality issue on our hands.)....
Priest forcibly removed from church for President Trump photo shares experience
You support this guy
good f***ing riddance
I never thought haunted houses was a thing until my roommates moved out.
Hang in there friend.
This was such a pathetic display.
You want pathetic read this
West Point summoned cadets back for Trump’s graduation speech. Now several have the coronavirus.
Hey GW. Ride it out. In hindsight I'm sure this will be a memory among others to take into the next stage of life. We are so caught up in short term thinking we sometimes forget the nature of time. What's a few months, a year, in the grand scheme of things.? By the time we get there and either an immunity of a vaccine it will be in the rear mirror and the relationships and friendships built over the years will still be there.
The Covid home working situation is a real eye opener for many in the sense that we are / were so engrossed in creating a social context inside and around work we perhaps lacked engagement in the personal side of life. "Work / Life" balance will have a new meaning going forward and I think it will, over time, be a healthier balance for our personal and emotional lives - we've been wrapped around the working axle for too long IMO. Take care, enjoy the freedom and time to reflect (and don't forget to get some of those vaccine shots this way ;-) ).!
I grew up down the street from this guy. He now lives in Beverly Hills, where apparently even the raccoons loot.... But eventually give it back.
Ladies and Gentlemen, our President. I guess this anecdote sums up the type of guy he is. Nobody should be surprised.
Excellent tune from some of my favorite musicians.
Story already got debunked. They never used tear gas and they were not being peaceful.
Something a bit more recent that hits home - from 2:12 mark. Modern day Harry Chapin, Cat's in the Cradle and very relevant for the rudderless masses of youth out there.
(and I'm not suggesting this an an end all, but anyone that has had kids knows the difference between being there, and REALLY being there...) The hardest job in life is to be a truly good parent because there is no hiding like in the work, social, or corporate world. It's crazy that it is easier to shirk responsibility in raising a kid than it is to shirk responsibility in a 9-5 job - shows just how deep a hole we have dug....
btw Papaoutai is a way of saying "Dad where are you"...
Which means they are done I believe?
They were gassed and shot at live on national tv!
Anyone who tries to spin that is part of the damn problem.
