    Sharkey's Tip of the Day

    That’s scary! Was the guy not paying attention or what?? Hopefully they are okay

    -just read: he was high centered and gave it gas... it broke free and hit a bystander then down in the crevice.

    If what I read is correct, he gassed it to free himself from being high centered. The same reports also say the bystander suffered a severe leg injury, possibly even a partial amputation. Only the people there know for sure. I imagine the actual facts will trickle down at some point.

    We are kidding ourselves to think life will return to “normal” in thirty, sixty, or even ninety days…and I am profoundly afraid of the precedent that has now been set. With each new directive, it appears that our leaders have chosen to sacrifice the future economic well being of our children to possibly save the lives of a very small percentage of the population. It is no less scary to me to see our society accept such a result without demanding the answers to very difficult questions.

    Let me be clear, I understand that Covid-19 will likely kill thousands, perhaps millions, of people across the United States. But, how many people will be confined to a life of poverty and die over the next decade from a depression created by the present fear that some people will die?

    Are you willing to destroy the economy and standard of living for 330 million people to save the lives of two people? What about to save the lives of two thousand people? What about the lives of 200,000 people? What about to save the lives of 2 million people? Does it matter if the lives we are talking about are already marginalized for some reason? I don’t know the answers to these questions, much less if there can even be “right” answers.

    All I know is that I am unwilling to sacrifice my children’s futures in exchange for my own. How many parents out there routinely say that they would do ANYTHING for their kids, their grandkids, and their nieces and nephews? Then why does it feel like we are doing the opposite of the mantra that is so foundational to being a parent: the future of your children above ALL else…even your own life.

    What you've just said is an elementary Foundation to this great country of America. Preamble of the US Constitution :

    We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
