I’ld rather die on my feet, than spend my life on my knee’s.
That’s a mighty bold statement and one a cowboy doesn’t take lightly.
A cowboy is the type of man that is quick to stand up for what he believes in.
Before I go to far, let me say that I am not putting down any particular type of man and I’m glad they are not all cowboys. I’m just telling you about cowboys, cause there all I know.
Most of the cowboys I know are combat veterans like me, which makes them no more or less a man than any other, It simply says that they’ve been through the fire before and ain’t scared to die for what they believe in.
One thing that I’ve seen cowboys do more than once, is to step in when a woman is being messed with or a small fellow is being picked on. Not much gets under a cowboys skin faster than a bully, we just can’t stand them and we’re mighty quick to ask if you’d like to try that shit with me. They usually don’t.
Cowboys have an honor system and I’m not sure i can explain it, it’s sort of an unwritten code to live by. I guess the only way I can try is to just list some of it.
Always stand up for what you believe in and hold true.
Never tell a lie on a man to hurt him, if he deserves it, the trueth will do.
Always stand up for those who can’t stand for themselves.
It’s better to be hated for who you are, than to be loved for who you ain’t.
A man never stands as tall as when he stoops to help someone up who has stumbled.
Don’t keep that savvy to yourself, pass it along.
If you can’t do something right, do something smart.
When you loose your temper, don’t piss on your reputation.
After your dead, all they will remember is the kind of man you were.
Live a life you’d be proud to hang your hat on.
If a woman gives her self to you, remember, there is no grater gift a person can give and always respect it. That is one my mom taught me.
And I’ll leave you with my favorite prayer, Lord please help me to be the kind of man my dog thinks I am. AMEN
