I totally copied this blog from Alannah Lynne's blog from today. Much like Alannah, I didn't check to see if this is a true story, I choose to believe it is true because our troops are so AWESOME!!!
I didn't bother to verify this story on Snopes because, well, I decided it didn't really matter if the story was true or not. The picture pretty much says it all for me and I wanted to give a shout out to the men and women who are working to make the world a better place. For everyone!
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.
