At some point in your life, you’ll end up looking down the barrel.
For a lot of people, it’s the end point, as the gun, actual or metaphorical, goes off and takes them down.
But for others, they dodge the bullet, or it jams, or any of a million possible outcomes.
It changes you, though. Coming face to face with your mortality, that can’t not make you view everything in a new light.
Some people run away. Some people break down. Others go into denial.
But the truly great? They grab the damn gun and take control of it themselves.
