The Tattoos of Life

My cousin’s daughter tried to get into the Air Force but was denied because she had a tattoo on the back of her neck. It was a small strawberry that cost her $40 dollars to get but it’s costing her $600 dollars to have it removed. The strawberry took 20 minutes to get, but its taking her weeks to have it removed. It’s our meaningless actions that cost us the most harm because we never think about the End because we are too busy thinking about the Means of the NOW. She can’t get in the Air Force with it being so visible and sometimes the suffering of the aftermath of our thinking is more severe than the consequences of our discipline. It’s not that she isn’t a good girl but its the policy of the institution that she wants to get accepted in. There is a cost for opportunity, but the poignant question that we must ask ourselves is, ” Are we ready for the opportunity when it presents itself?”. Tattoos has become one of the most profitable businesses now, but 90% of the people that’s getting them, don’t have any concrete definitive reasoning for getting them other than, ” I want one!”. Never scar your body to the point of it leaving a scar on your opportunities!  Make sure that it’s what you want for life, and not just right Now~richard cook
