The Rescuer Was A Marine
Remember the story I told you about the woman and one of the two children drowning a few days back?
Listen to this part---the man who rescued the nine-year old boy, left before anyone could thank him. The news kept mentioning the anonymous man who couldn't be found.
Well, he finally came forward.
He is a Marine.
Very low-key and quiet.
He said as he was rescuing the boy, he had the woman's hair clenched in his other hand as she held the little girl.
The water pulled her hair through his fingers and she was gone. He and another man ran along the bank, but the water was just too fast.
Afterwards, the nine year old boy thanked him for saving his life. The Marine could only reach down and kiss his forehead.
He heard the little boy will be ten this weekend, so he left a special birthday card for him at the police station.
He lost his 18-month old daughter in
a drowning accident in 1995.
He said he didn't want another family
to go through what he had.
May there be peace some day for all the suffering families and friends across the nation who were hurt so cruelly by this horrible storm.
Man; I'm a tough old bird, but this one
really caught me off-guard.
