It’s kind of weird how context matters when viewing corpses. As long as they are in boxes, in special areas, it’s cool. Otherwise it’s a no go. I understand why it is, but it’s still odd. Plus it’s different rules for different people & occasions. You can parade a corpse down the street if they were extra naughty, or someone wants an example made of them. There’s a lot of elaborate corpse rules that you just kind of have to absorb from living in a society. On top of that the rules change arbitrarily from time to time.
I worked with a soldier back in the day & I remember him telling me that you can never tell how someone is really going to react to death in the moment or even months later. Sometimes the guys you think will break just shrug it off & carry out the mission while he toughest son of a bitch you ever saw falls completely apart. Sometimes you think you’re okay with it until you’re doing your laundry one day & you suddenly fall apart because you finally let your guard down & started to process watching your buddy die.
Everything is complex & simple at the same time all the time.
That kind of thought is a Brooskie thought. Like, if you want to know why she is the way she is it’s because I dumped this weird part of my personality in to her.
