>Don’t Criticize Until You Have Been There…

>…or at least willing to be there….

Read this in an interview with former Navy SEAL Howard Wasdin in the May 23 issue of “Time.” He to question, “So why did the team make the choice to kill Osama bin Laden?:

“The guys in the room made that decision. If you want to be in a position to make those

types of decisions, go join the team.

Otherwise, just say thank you.”

Methinks that applies to any other profession/calling…like housewife, parent, quizmaster, preacher, youthworker, etc

If you think you need to second guess people who have to make decisions; zippeth thy lip unless and until you’ve “been there, done that” or at least are willing to put the effort into it.

By the way, I just looked at the reviews; and just ordered the book. It was scheduled to be published long before the Bin Laden operation, so it’s not a quick get it out and make money; the guy has been there, and it looks fascinating. Buy it (and, if you do, buy it off the link so I can make a few cents 🙂
