The Real Winner of the Nobel Peace Prize

Pin It With Christmas approaching and so many soldiers overseas away from their families, I thought it fitting to honor them for what they do to maintain world peace. This story touched my heart and truly believe that this solider (along with all the others) are the winners of the Nobel Peace Prize.

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 shoot 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 a hero of peace.

May all the soldiers keep safe from danger while overseas. May they return home soon to their families safe and sound.

Merry Christmas to all the soldiers around the world who keep us safe.

  9. The title selected for this piece overshadows an otherwise positive message. Of the bazillions of titles one could come up with, why would one be selected that discredits Barack Obama?


Thanks for taking the time to leave a comment! I love reading all of them. Have a wonderful day.
