Wednesday’s Hero


Pink Flamingo friend and confidant Sally Vee forwarded the following:

“…Maybe Obama could take a break from all the game-playing one of these days and learn something about being commander-in-chief. At the very least, he needs to put his teleprompter in touch with CBS golf analyst David Fleherty. In the video below you’ll hear Fleherty give one of the most articulate and passionate tributes to our military that you’ve ever heard. Oh, and then he’s actually doing something to back up his words. Fleherty is originally from Northern Ireland where he grew up in war-torn Belfast. His partner in the Troops First endeavor, Rick Kell, is also quite a guy.

Trust me, you need to see this video. Bring a man-size kleenex:…”

Sally is right.  Watch this video, and remember to say a major league thank you prayer for these brave men and women.

Christopher Lee puts together the Wednesday’s hero, week after week.  For Christmas, he wrote the following:

I sat here trying to think how to start this post. What did I want it to say? How long did I want it to be? I wasn’t sure how to begin. I turned on some Christmas music to help get me in the right frame of mind to write a Christmas Wednesday Hero post, but it wasn’t really helping. I mean, how do you properly thank a group of people who have given up everything in their lives to serve you and protect people all over the world with just a single post on a silly blog? Many of these Men and Women haven’t seen their friends and families in months and many won’t be seeing them for many more months. How do you thank them? They are away from home during the time of year when everyone should be together. How do you thank them for that? Some of them will never see their home or loved ones again because they laid down their life for a complete stranger. How do you thank them for that? I guess the better question would be are we able to thank them enough?

To all those who have completed their service, the ones who are serving, the ones who have payed the ultimate sacrifice and those who may have never served but help those who have and are, Thank You and Merry Christmas.

These brave men and women sacrifice so much in their lives so that others may enjoy the freedoms we get to enjoy everyday. For that, I am proud to call them Hero.
We Should Not Only Mourn These Men And Women Who Died, We Should Also Thank God That Such People Lived
