I can't hide my disappointment, no matter how I try to convince myself from any viewpoint. I just can't take the fact that after years of dedication, this is all they get. I try to be indifferent or even cold-hearted, but I can't convince myself as I could most of the time. I keep thinking, if I were them, I will be so disapointed about what I heard. Maybe I've grown too closer personally with them; maybe I am getting old and become too tender-hearted; but maybe I am not the one wrong! This feeling brings me back to years ago when I first had a similiar situation. Maybe it is good for them to finally learn, as did for me back then, this is the way things work at this battlefield, the cold one stays.
