A Picture Worth Much More Than Words

My friend Doris sent this to me so that I could post it on my blog and I’m so glad she did as it has touched my heart and I’m sure it will touch yours as well.


This needs to make headline news…not some of the other junk that makes the news these days!!!  If you agree, please share it with others.  It’s a tough, but heartwarming story…with a picture of John Gebhardt in Iraq.

john gebhardt and girl

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 with the WORLD!  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.

  1. Dear Briggitte,
    Thank you so much for sharing this with so many. It
    surely touches every American’s heart to see something
    positive about our soldiers. Mindy must be so proud of her husband. Thank God for people like him doing such a great job in Iraq.
    God Bless,
