Handling Life's Torpedoes


Do you recall the movie The Hunt For Red October?


Well, there was a famous scene when a torpedo was shot at the submarine, the Red October, from a short range of 1.5 miles... The situation looked grim. The crew was frightened, and the captain ordered what looked like a suicide. He ordered to turn the Red October toward the incoming torpedo.


The officer on the wheel was sure it was a mistake and asked for clarification. The captain confirmed the order, “Turn toward the torpedo, and fast!”


Everyone on board the Red October was holding tight. Some started to pray quietly. The tension was at its peak! In a major contrast, the captain started an idle chit chat to a devastated person next to him. The captain seemed to be totally relaxed.
