I received this photo via email this morning, along with the following note:
“[John’s] His wife, Mindy, related that this little girl’s entire family was executed. They intended to execute her also and shot her in the head, but they failed to kill her. She was cared for by John’s hospital and healing up, but has been crying and moaning. The nurses said John is the only one she seems to calm down with, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both sleep in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing.
John comes home in early October.
*He is a real Star of the war and is representative of what America is trying to do.”
I haven’t seen this photo or story in the mainstream media, with the exception of on FOX NEWS. I wish that weren’t the case–that all Americans could see the spirit of John Gebhardt.
Bless him for his compassion and opening his heart to this child. May we all aspire to be like him.
