One of our members is in bad shape. Terrible news.


January 29, 2004, 07:33 PM
I have just found out that Robert Jensen, the poster we all know as Blackhawk, had a massive stroke on Monday January, 26. Things are not looking well for him. The doctors did find some eye movement, but they claim it is involuntary. He is in intensive care I do not have a prognosis. Join me in putting Blackhawk and his wife in our prayers.

Blackhawk is a special man to me.

I'd like to share with everyone a very kind PM he sent me a while back that has always stuck in my head:

Age and experience

Since you started on TFL last year, I've been more and more impressed by your mature grasp of many abstract and complicated principles of law and living in general.

Soon after joining TFL, there was a spat that involved some confusing you with a medical doctor. Although you never said you were when I first welcomed you to TFL assuming you were, you never corrected me or others.

I now find it increasingly interesting and irritating that many assume you are a doctor referring to you as Dr. Jones, Dr., etc.

In a way, it seems that you want to be thought of as older than your 22 years. The amazing thing is that you appear to think like a professional twice that age. That's a tremendous compliment, but I'm saddened if you're somewhat bothered by your youth.

I don't want anything by this message -- it's meant as a compliment and encouragement.

Your credibility suffered with me at the time of that spat I referred to above, but you've earned it back. However, I remain confounded about why you don't correct those who mistakenly refer to you as Dr., etc.

Any misconceptions are, of course, their failures instead of due to misrepresentation on your part, but I'm wondering why you let their confusion continue instead of reveling in your remarkable accomplishments at so young an age.

January 1st, 2003 08:12 PM

I just tried calling, but he didn't have anyone there to talk to. I wanted to at least give wishes to some family member.

Man this is awful... :( :( :(

January 29, 2004, 07:54 PM
Let's all hope that our combined prayers and good wishes are heard and answered. I am so sorry to hear of his condition, Mike

Look, we beseech you, down upon our beloved brother with favor. Hold him in the palm of Your hand and grant him the blessings of returning health. Comfort his family in their time of need, and if it is Your will, return him to their side, that they may remain together for our short time on this earth. Lord in Your mercy, hear our prayer. Amen

Strength and Faith to Blackhawk and family.
With the indulgence of the moderators and the board:

" Mine eyes are ever toward the Lord; for he shall pluck my feet out of the net.
Turn thee unto me, and have mercy upon me; for I am desolate and afflicted.
The troubles of my heart are enlarged; O bring thou me out of my distresses.
Look upon mine affliction and my pain; and forgive all my sins.
Consider mine enemies; for they are many; and they hate me with cruel hatred.
O keep my soul and deliver me; let me not be ashamed; for I put my trust in thee.
Let integrity and uprightness preserve me; for I wait on thee."
- Psalms 25:15-21 (King James version)
