Default Hero Cop and family needs our help

Once a day you can click on the link and help this Officer (who almost gave it all) give his family a great vacation. His wife put together this video together. If you watch the video you will see all he has been through and what happened to him, it is quite moving.

A Cincinnati Police Sgt. attempted to end a chase of a felon that was endangering the public by using stop sticks. The bad gueither lost control or came right at the Sgt and hit him with such force it embedded a uniform button in the truck frame. The Sgt. is coma for quite a while and is given 20 percent chance of living. Broken neck in 2 places, brain bleeding, etc. He spends something like a year with surgeries and rehab and is now back with his family... He is truely a miracle.. I wish the link would come back up, it is truely a wonderful story...

THE LINK IS BACK UP NOW IT APPEARS... if you click on the link it is a vote to let the whole family go to disney world for free...

"Once a day you can click on the link and help this Officer (who almost gave it all) give his family a great vacation."

Nothing deceptive in that - would you rather it was a solicitation for money? What did you expect. What's the matter - do you have another horse in that race? Or did you just not like the Christian overtones?

I clicked, and have added it to my favorites list - so there!

Thanks everyone,
I just checked the link and they won the trip. I am sure his family is very happy. I know they appreciate the help. Garett I would be honored if you would just put me on your ignore list...

Cracker,

Thanks for the update - I am very happy for them. It's nice to see some good news for a change.
