God Sent Us

Pro Skateboarder and Devine Jereme Rogers

Every once in a while you run across one of those child-rearing specialist stories where the world-renowned expert warns us of the dangers associated with the fawning, “you’re so special” school of baby raising.  To wit:

The Daily News reports that X Games skateboarding wonder man , Jereme Rogers, 26, was arrested at a New York hotel after engaging in (another) drug-induced one-man riot, tearing down artwork in the hallway, nude.  Rogers apparently has a preference for angel dust, psychedelic mushrooms and marijuana.

Don’t despair, for not only is God  on his side, he put him here with a purpose.  Rogers has “In God I Trust” tattooed across his neck and says “I believe he (God) has strategically placed me here so I could try to put out a message, you know?”

 

While we (eagerly) await that message it deserves to be pointed out that Oscar Ramiro Ortega-Hernandez said eerily similar words just prior to coming to Washington, DC, to shoot up the White House with a rifle, “I have never felt so sure that I was sent here by God to lead the world to Zion.”

Rogers attributes his skills to “divine intervention”, and is, at least, on medication, if of the self-prescribed variety.

Eric: Good history lesson. For some reason I thought you were getting ready to get into the Texas City explosions. I think I saw that anniversary is upon us as well. Thanks for your kind work about Glenn. I have repeated them often as the most fitting obituarial words I ever have heard, i.e. "he…

When you were around Chief Gaines for any length of time you realized that notwithstanding his long and distinguished career in the active fire service, that just because he retired didn't mean he was no longer engaged learning and sharing on many different subjects and issues of the fire service! Oh no...if anything he "dove…

Thanks for your big-picture perspective, Eric. I think that when we most need to keep our wits about us and keep in mind a larger context is when we are least likely to do so. Maybe this is why we're all told to count to 10 before responding when we're upset.

I had never met Chief Gaines until just last month at the National Fire Academy, but having heard much about him in previous classes, it was nice to hear him in person. What strikes you almost immediately is a sense of pride he had, mixed with a passion for the fire service that instills that…
