It's so easy to expect the worst to happen. #thoughts

Isn't it the end of the world yet? Despite all earlier predictions of such kind of an event being disproven by time, here we were again, faced with another similar prediction and there we were again, or at least some of us, thinking or expecting it to be true.

A reaction to a reaction on the recent shooting at an elementary school in the US

Last post, I talked about those shootings as well, stressing on the importance of parenting, and how people don't seem to see or how they seem to ignore how parenting played a role in that very, very unfortunate incident. It is a very difficult topic to discuss in one blog article. But I failed to mention one more thing that people don't seem to see or that they seem to deny as to what might also have caused that very sad incident: mental illness.

For that, I link to this article written by a mother who has had to deal with a son who has one, and has demonstrated violent tendencies of his own:

Pacquiao will be fine and he should consider fighting again.

Hey, boxing and Pacquiao fans. He'll be fine. It is better to be KO'ed (and for Manny, doctors have said he is okay after performing CT scans on him), or to have some swells, cuts and bruises, than receiving consecutive blows to the head and not being KO'ed at all.

Now, check this out first, will you. This is a good read: Oh, and this:

Can people who don't know anything about boxing (the sport of, and/or the business of), please stop saying anything about boxing?

[On the Pacquiao vs Marquez 4 boxing fight]

Can people who don't know anything about boxing (the sport of, and/or the business of), please stop saying anything about boxing? It's annoying.

It was a good fight, they were both game, one guy made one mistake, one guy capitalized on it, it could have gone either way.

Congratulations to Marquez, he was obviously the better man, but they both still end up with huge amounts of money that even I would train for and fight anyone for the same amount or even less.

Because tens of millions of dollars is called an opportunity. And winners don't let opportunities walk away. Meanwhile, losers, unable to see opportunities, would have all the reasons and all the excuses and all the names to hurl at winners.

I've asked this before, but I ask it again.

Are you a winner or a loser?

Go on. Call me names and tell me your excuses.
