There is an old saying that goes like this: "when you look into hell, hell looks into you". The quote is attributed to Neicher, but Neicher never looked beyond the hell of his own mind. I have a dangerous job, one that deals with the uncomfortable and unpleasant side of life. My brothers and sisters include Firemen, Police Officers, Soldiers, Medical Professionals, there are others. When you look into the eyes of violence and evil, you either look away and run, or you fight. When you look into the eyes of death itself, you can shy away or you can go to work. It is a lonely road for those of us who live in the abyss of reality, those who must face the ugly truths of life. Most of our friends and families don't understand us, how could they? Sometimes we fall victim to depression or addiction, and there is always a feeling of being alone. I have managed to stay sane, but I have had help. If you are afraid of blood, or death, or violence, don't come anywhere near the abyss, leave that to those of us who have proven ourselves. Yet should you find yourself in dire need, we will be there.
