It's amazing how you can support war and "warrior culture" and then make a post about how too many veterans take their own lives. You don't seem to understand the reason they commit suicide is because they killed people or had to witness people dying

First off,

I can without hesitation or hypocrisy support Warrior Culture, AND War, while simultaneously morning my brothers and sisters in arms. The concept of higher thought and multitasking may be beyond you my dear, sweet, and butt hurt anon but they are facets of my every day life. 

As for supporting War AND Warrior Culture, yes

And I understand veteran suicide better than most, I would be a statistic myself if it hadn’t been for some timely, and somewhat divinely inspired intervention. Let me break it down for you barney style since cognitive and rational discourse do not seem to be your style my greyfaced friend. 

Myself and most veterans are proud of our service and all of the family that we made within the fraternity of arms, each and every service member who dies is a brother and sister and I morn for them. War and the Modern Warrior Culture of the UNITED STATES MARINE CORPS gave me purpose, and in understanding Ancient Warrior Culture history we avoid repeating the negative portions.

People like you do not understand, you do not listen, you do not even pretend to, you do not care about us. If you did you’d be doing something about suicide awareness instead of attacking veterans for doing something about suicide awareness. So I wont be going into greater depth, it would be wasted on you, besides

For all those veterans who are in need

Bon Iver - 33 “GOD” - Official Lyric Video

So moved by giving hearts near and far. A sweet friend whom I haven’t even had the chance to meet in person yet sent this gift for baby boy all the way from Canada (whatttt)! We initially connected through our blogs and throughout time have grown close, despite the distance between us, through letters and our phones. To take the time and thought into getting baby a gift shows only a glimpse of her incredible soul.

Now that baby boy’s ears are fully formed, I have loved reading aloud to him. And I actually find myself benefitting from the devotionals as well; written in such a simple way, but not sacrificing depth. Looking forward to the day when he can read, understand, search, and learn for himself. But until then, I’ll enjoy reading to him for as long as I can.

Thankful for good people like @rahgodgirl who love us so well.

Emil is one of those characters who sort of hangs around in the background for me to draw/update occasionally. And sometimes appears in plots to shove other characters in the right direction. And each time I think ‘hm, I should do more with this one’.

BON IVER  “33 GOD"

Two weeks ago, Bon Iver announced that their new album, “22, A Million”, will be released on September 30 via Jagjaguwar. They have also shared two lyric videos for the extended versions of the first two songs from the record, “22 (OVER S∞∞N) [Bob Moose Extended Cab Version]” and “10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⊠ ⊠ (Extended Version). Today he’s shared the official lyric video for another song called “33 ‘God’”. Listen above.

With thirty three days until we’re blessed with Bon Iver’s third studio album 22, A Million, it’s only fitting that Justin Vernon has shared the aptly titled “33 “GOD””. As with the previously heard singles “ 22 (OVER S∞∞N) ” and “10 d E A T h b R E a s T ⚄ ⚄”, the song encompasses a more experimental but equally balanced soundscape, as Vernon’s signature falsetto sits atop reverbed orchestration consisting of some of killer drums and piano progressions. Honestly, September 30th couldn’t come sooner - we simply can’t wait to hear the rest of the record. For now though, check out the lyric video to the new single above.
