Default 500 Miles of Fire Fighters



The ashes of Sean Misner, one of the 19 firefighters who died last week in Arizona, were being transported by his wife back to their hometown on Tuesday. She was in his truck and is pregnant with their unborn child. On every overpass for nearly 500 miles there was a tribute similar to this. Pretty damn remarkable and worthy of more media coverage than most of the other stuff that has been on tv lately. Wanted to share because our media has seemed to overlook it.

Amazing what a little brotherhood can accomplish isn't it?

I can't take credit for the passage accompanying the photo. It was written by Mike Oslund.

Just felt like bumping this because I think its more important than some of the junk we've been reading lately.

Seems the good things people do in America isn't mainstream Media worthy any longer. If it's not about guns, Race, Obama care, abortion, etc, it doesn't get much air time.

Isn't that the truth. Stories like this is what unites America but unfortunately nobody knows about them unless your directly involved. America is in a very sad state right now, thanks to the media and our leader.
