What a wild weekend with no end in sight. Protesters are causing much damage and injury. It is senseless, because it isn’t about the death of someone any more. It is just plain anarchy.
A story I saw today on TV was that a SUV was racing towards a crowd of protesters. The National Guard tried to get him to stop. He kept coming. They tried other methods to try to stop him. He kept coming.
A hero is born.
A Lone National Guard soldier fired three shots at the vehicle, because the driver was also heading toward some police officers who were right behind him .
All three bullets hit the SUV. The driver panicked and drove away.
That National Guardsman, saved many lives with his courage. He didn’t want to kill. He just shot at the rig and not at the windows.
You probably won’t hear much about this in the Fake news, but he is my hero.
I thought I would share another interview with you today. This one may make you cry, or be angry:
Sgt Michael Thorin, was in charge of a group of vehicles, which was to guard the carvens that move from place to place. Their job was to fight off any agressers when they attack.
On one of the days they were ride along with a convoy, when the rig right in front of Sgt Thorn caught on fire with two men in it. Sgt Thorin jumped out of his rig and raced to the scene. It was too late. There was a massive fire immediately. He had to watch while his buddies burned to death.
He is still dealing with that today.
There is a much longer story and interview about this hero in my up coming book, Signs of Hope for the Military: In an Out of the Trenches of Life.
I have many such interviews. Many very sad. Some very funny. I will try to let you see them as time goes by.
How are you doing?
Have you lost buddies in battles? Have you been injured?
It is hard at best to face life, when things happen you can’t control.
