Yesterday I shared how excited I am for the Hawks season…well, I am not the only one in my household that’s excited…after a visit to Petsmart, Lulu decided to show off that she is the 12TH Pup!
After posting this picture on Facebook…I got this comment:
Julius -- That is bad ass! Lulu should raise the 12th man flag!
In the last week, we have come across three stories of public figures saving people’s lives.
PRINCE WILLIAM and his Royal Air Force Search and Rescue team saved a drowning girl off the coast of Wales a little over a week ago. The 16-year-old girl and her 13-year-old friend were body-boarding when they got caught in a riptide and dragged out to sea. The younger girl was rescued by a surfer, but the older girl swallowed water and was slowly going under. Prince William's team had just landed its helicopter after completing routine exercises, so they were able to jump right back in and get there in just 38 seconds.
A couple weeks ago, actor THOMAS HADEN CHURCH was eating at a restaurant in Los Angeles when a man at another table started choking. Church rushed over and performed the Heimlich, saving the guy's life.
56-year-old Jim Joyce is an umpire in the Major Leagues. He's the guy who missed a call two years ago and cost a pitcher a perfect game. Last week, he was getting ready to work a game between the Miami Marlins and Arizona Diamondbacks in Phoenix, when a stadium employee had a seizure and collapsed. Jim remembered his high-school CPR course . . . and got the woman breathing again and saved her life.
Based on these stories of people saving someone’s life…when have you saved someone’s life? Of when did someone save your life? Here are the texts we received….
