Because this is the book that I read and mentioned to Elvis Sidekicks Joe Esposito and Jerry Schilling.
The only 2 members of the Memphis Mafia that I ever wanted to meet because I read so many Elvis books when I was a kid that I thought that they were the only 2 who were ever really friends with Elvis in a meaningful way.
And you know what happened? They both yelled at me.
I don’t think Elvis would have approved of that.
So you know, I totally sympathize with Elvis on why he fired those other bodyguards.
You don’t get to rough up the fans who were responsible for Elvis success and you sure as fuck don’t do it to fans now either who are keeping Elvis’ memory alive.
Consider more what the person is asking for and not the context of their question or what you think about the framework – this person is seeking comfort outside of their faith and most of these answers really are appalling coming from people who tend to position themselves as humanists – because seriously – that is a human in pain and seeking comfort – not lectures, not sarcasm and not suck it up that’s just life – but seeking comfort in a heightened context.
be kind and pay it forward. not just saying
