Ready to Die for It

There’s a commercial that comes on for a Canadian made TV show about the rodeo. In the commercial one of the rodeo cowboys says, “If you love something you should be ready to die for it.” That may not be an exact quote as I had to type the background information and lost track of the exact words.

Anyway, I think that is a bit silly. I’m not ready/ prepared/ eager to die for anything. If you die you become dead. You don’t get to hit restart or re-do. You’re just done. If I was going to die for something it would have to be for more than just love. Oddly enough, I want to be here the next day to be with the people I love, do the things I love and just generally stick around.
