floatsome I am disappointing you didnt check the "facts" before you posted that letter. and the above comments are not directed at you they are directed to those who pass on such bs chain emails.
i did know and acknowledge that this was old news, as i stated earlier. my point to the posting was to show how much we hear about people who, in the real matters of life, have done nothing. we call junkies and druggies, like witless houston, a hero and cover her with accolades and honors that a man who risked life and limb, not just once but repeatedly to save the lives of those he did not know, was not deemed worthy of.
i am not patriotic, but i admire any one who will throw his life to the wolves to save and protect others, be they soldier police fireman ems ect ect..hell even joe nobody off the street who runs into the burning building to look for those in need of services....their names should be known, their names should be honored, not entertainers or athletes or any other superficial type of employment that never puts their life or safety at risk.
its like the british fashion of knighting entertainers and such......how exactly did they win a warriors glory when they sang a song or pretended to be a soldier for a camera?
we live in a very pathetic world
