suffered a mangled left hand and serious wounds to his legs in a November 13 fire fight in Falluja. Battle, who is recovering at his parents’ home in this desert city 130 kilometers (80 miles) northeast of Los Angeles, came under attack as he and fellow Marines entered a building. Eleven other Marines were wounded.
Doctors were preparing to cut off Battle’s ring to save as much of his finger as they could.
“But that would mean destroying my wedding ring,” he said. “My wife is the strongest woman I know. She’s basically running two people’s lives since I’ve been gone. I don’t think I could ever repay her or show her how grateful … how much I love my wife, my soul mate.”
With his approval, doctors severed his finger, but somehow in the chaos that followed, they lost his ring.
Although Battle was disappointed, his wife, Devon, said she was honored.
“I can’t believe he did that,” she said. “At first I was mad when he told me, but then I realized how lucky I am to have him in my life.”
The couple, who met in the eighth grade, were married in June, just two weeks before Battle left for Iraq. He hopes to eventually return to the Marines, and to replace his wedding ring, but that will have to wait until he recovers.”
Não sei o que é mais patético; o cara ter perdido o dedo pra salvar um anel que foi perdido em seguida pelos médicos incompetentes, ou o fato de que esse mané de 19 anos já era casado e que, apesar de praticamente mal ter entrado na sagrada união, ter a total confiança de que durará pra sempre, e colocando o próprio dedo na aposta.
Eu já achava que tomar mudanças drásticas de vida quando se tem apenas 19 anos – como casar – era imbecilidade; cortar fora um dedo por causa de uma aliança apenas mostra o tipo de coisa que um imbecil que se casa aos 19 é capaz de fazer.
Nego só come uma buceta na vida, aí casa, e olha no que dá.
Domingo agora é o show do Slipknot, se eu voltar vivo escreverei um post relatando o evento só pra fazer inveja a vocês que jamais verão a banda ao vivo.
Deixe sua opinião aí. Você não tá fazendo nada mesmo!
