True Heroes


We live in a day and age where we have really messed up values in terms of who we consider to be a hero.

If you asked most kids who their hero is, they will mutter something about some sports figure making millions of dollars and not really making any impact on their community (not they aren't talented... and not that some aren't making a huge difference... but most just take their money and buy some "Bling" and a Cadillac).

Last night, on the news, they were talking about these 9 true heroes from Charleston. When I heard the headline for the story, it caught my attention, mostly because my dad was a volunteer firefighter for 20 years or more and was the Chief for a long time. So, whenever they talk about firefighters, that means something to me. Because I spent a lot of time hanging around the firehouse as a kid.

But if you are looking for a Hero... you don't have to look any further than Charleston. These guys are True Heroes. I pray that God's Spirit would be with these fine men's families.

Click here to read the full story from FoxNews.com. Here's a little snipet:
"One coached football when he wasn't fighting fires. Another cut hair at a barbershop. Yet another was known for quoting the Bible. They called each other nicknames like "Squirrel" and "Lightning."
