See my last post on Page 2 of this thread for the final update.
With all that is going on in the world sometimes the little things are missed. In the following current news report you will see a young boy who knew
he could not swim but in spite of that he saved a little girl...
Original news source:
Six-year-old Donnie Hauser-Richerme knew he couldn't swim, but he also knew the little girl in the murky, debris-filled swimming pool was in
Donnie jumped in and helped save 5-year-old Karah Moran's life before becoming stuck in five feet of blackened rain water and muck at the bottom of
the deep end. Paramedics eventually rescued him, but he was in critical condition and on life support Thursday.
Karah called Donnie "my hero."
"I can't say enough about this little guy," said Chicago Ridge Police Chief Tim Baldermann. "It's amazing that this little kid, old enough to
understand it's a dangerous situation, was so brave. Without thinking about himself he instinctively jumped in to help his friend."
Please visit the above original news source link for the full report.
Sometimes we can be inspired by real acts of heroism, This case if nothing more will open your heart to see that against all odds and with great
sacrifice a hero is born.
This young child in his rush to save his friend sacrificing himself without thought brought to me at least a sense of a greater good that exists
within most humans and a true Hero knows no age.
I am not a very religious person but if there was ever a time to pray for someone this is it.
May god save this boy and bring him back to his family and to the people who wish to honor him for his selfless act of heroism.
Sometimes the back page news has stories that to me have far much more meaning and can show the face of humanity.
