You may have read about Taylor Morris here. However, another great website called The Chive, picked up on this story and ran with it and ran big. Look through the picture progression below, then read on.
If you are watching this and are home or at most at work, remember, your Monday isn't really that bad. You are not dealing with extreme weather, crappy environment or even more so, people trying to kill you. Kinda puts the "bad Monday" in perspective now doesnt it? Remember those fighting, many have forgot we are here.
Below is a motivating video that shows how their days go. Interesting enough, watch the video and note the shooters in "green" who are Afghanies, they aren't fighting, only US members are (esp at 6:54) they are hiding. 2014, we "pull out" as its been preached (except for the 2k+ Marines staying behind - guess that means we aren't really leaving). Make your Monday count -- they do!Time for a C-Gar!

It’s Monday. Before you
let the thoughts that boo freakin hoo for me I’ve got to go to work
today, where most likely nothing too dangerous is going to happen to you,
remember as you use hot water to shave or shower, use the clean toilet, enjoy
the cup of joe your Mrs made you, savor the cold milk with breakfast, remember that
there are 20 year old warriors out in the shit scum part of the world getting
blown up and shot at and still kicking ass in the fight against terrorism that
everyone has forgot about.
The thing is, when you line a road like a hero is comming, he gets treated like a hero. Hey Washington, take some notes, this is one American who knows how to actually remember and treat American heroes like the heroes they are.Thank you Mr Eckhardt.
