It’s been a couple of months since YHC Q’d at CAT and we had a good crowd today. Navy Bean had asked me to sign up a couple of times and when Navy Bean asks you to do something, you better do it! YHC has a ton of respect for that guy. There were a couple of guys I was hoping to see today, but maybe they will post next time. As always, good workout with these men and even better 2nd F.
Great work, today.
Here’s how it went:
Conditions: Clear, low 60’s

“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” It’s a quote routinely attributed to Edmund Burke. But it turns out falsely so. Apparently, he never uttered these words. At best, the essence of the quote can be traced back to the utilitarian philosopher John Stuart Mill. Either way, the spirit of the quote remains the same.
Psalm 24 better illustrates this sentiment:
If you do nothing in a difficult time,
your strength is limited.
Rescue those being taken off to death,
and save those stumbling toward slaughter.
If you say, “But we didn’t know about this,”
won’t He who weighs hearts consider it?
Won’t He who protects your life know?
Won’t He repay a person according to his work?
However, we are bound by our Creator to step in during difficult times. We are asked to protect our houses and our families. We are asked to set difficult guidelines for our children so that they are raised properly and be responsible for their actions. We are asked to be responsible for our own actions and stand up against the enemy who is trying to make invade us constantly. Evil enters our houses through TV, computer, cell phones, and even through boredom. We have to constantly be on the lookout and protect our houses.
