jesus take the wheel

Today, after I watched my dog get run over by a car, I sat on
the side of the road holding him and crying. And just
before he died, he licked the tears off my face.
Today, someone else’ s tragedy provided the miracle my
family had prayed for. Thanks to this stranger, my dad will
have a heart. It' s so odd to think that an accidental death
just saved his life.
Today, after a 72 hour shift at the fire station, a woman
ran up to me at the grocery store and gave me a hug.
When I tensed up, she realized I didn' t recognize her.
She let go with tears of joy in her eyes and the most
sincere smile and said, "(in , you carried me
out of the World Trade Center."
Today in downtown San Diego, I watched a blue collar
Mexican man get harassed for being Mexican. It was a
blatant act of discrimination. And the man actually
began crying. As he left the office building, he took off
thejacket. His toshiro underneath read, "I love the
Today, I was traveling in Kenya and I met a refugee from
Zimbabwe. He said he hadn' t eaten anything in over 3
days and looked extremely skinny and unhealthy. Then
my friend offered him the rest of the sandwich he was
eating. The first thing the man said was, "We can share
Today, after telling my grandmother that I didn' t want
to risk making such a huge mistake, she looked at me
and said, "Looking back on it all, there are so many
mistakes I wish I had had the courage to make when I
was your age."
Today, a 12 year old boy died in a house fire near my
neighborhood. After he pulled his mom to safety, he
ran back into the burning house for his
baby sister.
Today, my blind friend explained to me in vivid
detail how beautiful his new girlfriend is.
Today, I was stopped at a traffic light when a mid-
aged homeless woman asked me for change. I
usually I don' t give out dollars to the homeless
because I assume they are going to buy booze. But
I saw her 45 minutes later at 7/ 11 buying bread
and peanut butter. She was so happy to see me.
Today at the Atlanta airport, as I walked off a plane
dressed in my Army uniform, a little girl grabbed
my hand and asked me if I would be going back
overseas soon. stold her I would be in Tweeks.
She smiled and said, "Can you please tell my daddy
that I love him. My mommy told me he' s never
coming home from over there."
Today, as soon as my baby brother came
into my room, I yelled at him to get out without
even looking up at him. When he didn' t listen and!
turned around to yell again, I noticed he had a bowl
of cherries (my favorite) in his hands. He said,
Sorry, I just wanted to share these with you."
Today, I stopped to chat with the office janitor like
I do every Monday morning on my way into work.
And at the end of our conversation he grinned and
said, "You know, you' re the only one who ever
stops to talk to me around here, and you' re the
President and Cath"

I was truly astonished they would put a dogs heart in a dying man for several seconds until I realised that it wasn't one continuous story

I thought this was all one story,I was like what the **** is going on what does a dead dog have to do with 9/11

User avatar #73 to #66 - oceanmist (01/16/2014) [-]
That one doesn't make sense though, the military always returns the body home.
User avatar #94 to #73 - crazyhindu (01/17/2014) [-]
Yeah but she could've not understood what happened during the funeral and her mom might have just said it was like a celebration for her dad or something. I mean little kids usually don't understand
#90 to #73 - giustobuffo (01/16/2014) [-]
I'm sure the mom didn't mean "you dad's body is never coming back", she probably meant "you DAD is never coming back. The person that tickled you and shared root beer floats with you and read doctor Seuss to you is never gonna be here again."
#77 to #73 - kingoflint (01/16/2014) [-]
Unless there isn't much left to send back.
User avatar #79 to #77 - oceanmist (01/16/2014) [-]
Yeah but they still bring ashes, bits of helmet/uniform, or their personal effects and an empty coffin if theres absolutely nothing. But that pretty much doesn't happen since vietnam.
#45 - anon (01/16/2014) [-]
today was a ******* long day huh?
#41 - MasterManiac (01/16/2014) [-]
Nice comp OP.

Just want to point out that the Mexican man was most likely working illegally rather than being discriminated against - the cops are just doing their jobs. Still sad to see someone trying to make an honest living getting arrested simply because of where they were born.
User avatar #50 to #41 - kousei (01/16/2014) [-]
It wasn't a cop on the Mexican man, he was just being harassed.
#56 to #41 - anon (01/16/2014) [-]
i dont think illegals work in office buildings

Good thing i did not read, my feel sense was tingling.
