    My before ended when I was 5 years old, when I was living in San Antonio. 2 local thugs scouted out our open garage door in broad daylight, looking for stuff to steal. My neighbor (who was a warrior) noticed this and told my parents, and I went with them to inventory the garage to ensure nothing had been stolen. Rather mild compared to y'all's stories, but no doubt a defining moment.

    Yesterday my bride asked me as we headed out the door "you're wearing that thing, right?". First time in 25 years.

    SB ended her before.

    My daughter is four years old and she gets it already. The kids were playing with blue training guns in the street and a mother of one of the kids came out horrified and said "We don't shoot people." My daughter, who's honest, looked at her and said, "Yes we do, just bad people. We shoot them in the head."

    The mother went to my wife and asked what we were teaching our daughter and my wife said she's fine - she knows to only shoot bad people.

    I think the new generation will learn lessons about life earlier than many of us did.

    Had an interesting conversation with a friend living in the most liberal city in my otherwise conservative state. He indicated that he felt the need to be armed for protection of his family.

    He's aware of my "background", and this was the first time he ever asked about firearms. We are truly in the After times. How we comport ourselves and address this threat will determine our legacy and the future of free men.

    For me, it was a slow realization. I was in 9th grade when Columbine happened, and it started the wheels. The final straw was actually watching Katrina on tv while trying to get a hold of friends and family there. After seeing government in action in real time, I decided me and mine would never again count on them for protection.

    Can't say I know the date, but I have been this way since 5th grade...AT LEAST. I remember a mentally handicapped kid and his little brother getting beat up by three kids. My brother and I beat the piss out of those three assholes. We then escorted the other two home to make sure they were safe. Their mom initially thought we hurt them and reacted accordingly. We calmed her down and walked them home every day after that. That was more than 30 years ago. No training. No "skills" Today the training and skills are practiced EVERY day!!!
    If you knew you would fight for your life tomorrow, would it change the way you train today?

    Rom 13:4 For he is God's minister to you for good. But if you do evil, be afraid; for he does not bear the sword in vain; for he is God's minister, an avenger to execute wrath on him who practices evil.

    Train today for the things that others won't so tomorrow you can do what others can't

    My before ended the day I married my lovely bride. Now, I was the protector and provider for someone that depended on me for both.

    Excellent Post.

    My before was in Miami in 1983 when I was shot at in a drive by. I ate dirt that day and felt helpless. I was 13 and my childhood was over. From that point forward I have taken steps to never feel that way again, regardless of the situation.

    Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it. Proverbs 22:6 has many applications - you have just placed a very practical one into effect. Well done.
