This is what it is all about for those of us that joined the service, trying to make the world a little bit better place.
I found out about this from a friend of mine who emailed me the story and snopes verified it’s true, so for those of you who want to think that all the military ever does is shoot and kill maybe this will help you to re-evaluate your attitude some.
I’ll paste the email here and you can always go to the link and see it for yourselves.
Wouldn’t it be fitting if this went completely around the world!…..
This needs to make headline news…not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!! Like the Rosie O’Donell war of words…celeb weddings…who’s not wearing undies…e t c.
If you agree, please pass this along.It’s a tough, but heartwarming story…with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq .
I checked it with SNOPES. It is authentic.
John Gebhardt’s wife, Mindy, said that this little girl’s entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head…but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John’s hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.
This, my friends, is worth sharing. Go for it!! You’ll never see things like this in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don’t, but the American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we’re doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time.
