What Would You Wish For?

Stories like this one always grab my tear ducts and won’t let go! Even the Salvation Army commercials running lately make me cry instantly.

Selflessness is contagious! I am overly critical of my town…but now I’m repenting over it.

Many of us are reaching out to help the needy this holiday season, but some families wanted to help our injured soldiers out at Ft. Sill. Families across town have adopted the injured soldiers from a special “angel tree” — but many of them were surprised to see what the soldiers had written on their wish lists.

Some of them were so selfless it just made you realize what the holidays are all about. One soldier said he didn’t want anything for himself, but wanted to use his wish to help a needy family. Another soldier said he just wanted something nice to give to his wife. But a few of the soldiers we met Wednesday night surprised us with their wish lists in a whole different way…

Quotes

"I can't say I don't believe in your God, but I don't believe He meant the world to be as it is." ~Nicholas Higgins. North and South.

"I wanted you to see what real courage is, instead of getting the idea that courage is a man with a gun in his hand. It's when you know you are licked before you begin but you begin anyway and you see it through no matter what." No idea where that last quote came from, but I like it!
