And Now...Time For Some Good NewsPosted Monday, September 26, 2011, at 10:45 PM
This next story is involves a runner who was cut severely and injured during a cross country meet. Another runner comes to his rescue and carries his wounded adversary over a half a mile to help.
Next we move to Loyola hospital, where seven female employees within the past year, have donated one of their kidneys to strangers. The women say they are acting out of Faith in God, and Love.
I am sure many of you have heard of Dakota Meyer. The young, soft-spoken and humble Marine who was awarded this nation's highest honor for bravely saving the lives of 36 men while under fire, including the lives of two dozen Afghan soldiers.
President Obama awarded this young man the Congressional Medal of Honor, and Dakota, not liking the term hero, accepted on behalf of his fallen comrades. The link below, will give you an idea of the incredible actions of this young American, on what Meyer calls, "the worst day of his life." Please read this, see what kind of men and women we have in The United States Marines.
I think you'll like this next story. Troy Yokum, of Louisville, KY, decided that one person could make a difference. With that principle firmly in hand, Troy walked 7,800 miles around the country and raised over a half a million dollars to help returning veterans and their families. When you read the story, you'll find out that Troy, although tired and sore, is already planning on another adventure with a goal to raise over three million. Go Troy!
And finally, a delightful story of faith and hope from former football player Jason Wright. A man who walked away from a million dollar a year contract with the Arizona Cardinals, to return to school. His goal, to make a difference in the lives of inner city children. His ultimate goal is to open a Charter School.
Hope you all have a blessed day.
