Comment: Rand isn't...

(See in situ)


Rand isn't...

...a figure head like his father. That's what a lot of people seem to be mistaking him for. Such allusions of grandeur don't really interest him. He's more focused on being on the front line and doing what he needs to do in order to get the job done. He's a soldier like the rest of us, except he's on the front line, so whenever he has to do something that would seem gruesome, the kind of thing that would give you the thousand yard stare, people are going to notice. It's those instances that show that while the fight for the cause is just, once you see it on television for the first time, you realize the grim reality of the situation. That's when you're supposed to realize that once this is all over you make sure it never happens again. Somebody has to go into the deep shit. Not all of us can sit at the back of the division moving supplies up to the front.
