The Real Heroes You Don’t Hear About

Anyone can slay a dragon, she told me, but try waking up every moring and loving the world all over again.  That's what takes a real hero.  <3

Captain America may have jumped on a fake grenade to save his fellow soldiers in training, but in real life Lance Corporal William Kyle Kennedy actually did this… only the grenade was real.  On November 21, 2010 while in Afghanistan, a grenade was thrown into his sandbagged position.  Rather than run, Carpenter used his own body to shield the other soldier with him from the blast.  Miraculously, though severely injured, Kennedy lived and was awarded the Medal of Honor in June of 2014.

Each picture has a value, scripture & YW that portrayed that value.  Maybe use @ Girls Camp to go with theme: "Because of the Brave" ?

So true!  I'm tired of false heroes and "role-models". Reality (right) tv.  Kardashians and all the other idiots I never hear the end of. Are we really that afraid of facing real life head to head in this society that we must divert ourselves with false beauty and fame?  Scary.

A true hero... To think that this man's retirement pension (and that of others) should take a back seat to funding things like the $50,000 for Cowboy Poetry in Nevada! FOR SHAME!
