I Thought This Worthy of Posting

I received this as an email... thought I would post it!

"An Iowa boy

.... John Gebhardt works at the Cargill plant in Eddyville, Iowa.

Wouldn't it be fitting if this went completely around the world!.....

This needs to make headline news ... not some of the other junk that makes the news these days! Like the Rosie O'Donell war of words ... celeb weddings .... who's not wearing undies ... etc.

It's a tough, but heartwarming story ..... with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.

John Gebhardt's wife, Mindy, said that this little girl's entire family was executed. The insurgents intended to execute the little girl also, and shot her in the head ... but they failed to kill her. She was cared for in John's hospital and is healing up, but continues to cry and moan. The nurses said John is the only one who seems to calm her down, so John has spent the last four nights holding her while they both slept in that chair. The girl is coming along with her healing. He is a real Star of the war, and represents what America is trying to do.

This, my friends, is worth sharing. Go for it!! You'll never see things like this in the news. Please keep this going. Nothing will happen if you don't, but the American public needs to see pictures like this and needs to realize that what we're doing over there is making a difference. Even if it is just one little girl at a time.
