The Indisposable Legacy
What is the reason "women and children" get off the sinking boat first?
Is it because we are taught to see women as more valuable?
Is it that men are the disposable sex?
No, it’s because women and children are central to a man's (and his brothers) mission and legacy.
Mission is indispensable.
It’s a spiritual and biological drive which burns in the heart of every healthy man.
Therefore, men are willing to die for their legacy.
This is the same reason a mother will throw herself in front of a bullet for her children.
It's not that she is disposable.
It's for the mission and the legacy.
It's for the future.
Both sexes want their "fruit" to remain and mature.
You can think of legacy as the part of your mission that continues on into the future through your progeny, through children and grandchildren and great grandchildren.
So, legacy is the culmination of your mission.
And therefore if the house is on fire, you run in through the flames to get your kids.
If the boat is sinking and there is only so much room, you give it to them.
If there is an enemy at or in borders, you put your family somewhere safe, grab your weapons, and lay down life if necessary.
It’s our legacy which is indisposable.
Just remember you can’t die for a legacy that you won’t live for...get to it.
