Hey Emory Students: How About A Dose of Real Pain?
Why were the vast majority of them "scared" and "in pain"?
Because they saw this:
Chains? Really? Taking Melodrama 401, I see?
How about some real pain? Some real chains? If you react with such "terror" over chalk campaign endorsements, what, pray tell, would you do seeing these images?
Or these, where the executioner is leading his victim through the village square to his crucifixion, with his arm around his shoulder, before killing him and affixing him to a cross? And hogtying the other victim in the background to his cross?
How about imagining you're in a part of the world where this could seriously happen to you if you so much as whined in the wrong person's general direction?
Then how about getting down on your knees to kiss that chalk-covered concrete you're so tewwibwy afwaid of, to thank God, your parents, anyone, every day for the rest of your lives, that you're here and not there?
The only good news about the fate of those young men, about your same age or younger, is that they get shot in the head and/or heart first usually, then are strung up with chains and cords on the crosses after they're dead.
Tell me: Who came to "Speak to [those young men] in their pain"?
Wait till you get to the real world, then you'll also find that "Millennials like socialism — until they get jobs:"
"...millennials become averse to social welfare spending if they foot the bill. As they reach the threshold of earning $40,000 to $60,000 a year, the majority of millennials come to oppose income redistribution, including raising taxes to increase financial assistance to the poor.What an ironic time that would be: if all the Socialism-loving Sanderistas put Bernie in the White House (a long shot unless Hillary is indicted which is still entirely possible and even likely), then after they turn 26 and have to fork out dough for their own insurance premiums and pay 30%-40%+ total taxes out of their paychecks...then they are reminded that they voted for this themselves!
"Similarly, a Reason-Rupe poll found that while millennials still on their parents’ health-insurance policies supported the idea of paying higher premiums to help cover the uninsured (57 percent), support flipped among millennials paying for their own health insurance with 59 percent opposed to higher premiums."
College-coddling of millennials. Prepares you for nothing.
Do you think that protesting not getting a raise or a promotion by saying or even implying to your bosses, "You are not listening! Come speak to me, I am in pain! I have nothing to lose but my chains" will get you anywhere?
Your bosses will say, "You have nothing to lose but your job. You're fired."
