    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.

    The word "hero" gets used far too often in our society. This young man is the reason the word "hero" is in our language. He is the reason we should erect statues to immortalize someone. May God grant him eternal peace.

    I agree. Excellent post & I appreciate you share because A REAL hero does NOT consider themselves & ONLY focuses on the well being of others!!!

    Words fail me...

    The tears streaming down my cheeks have not.

    one of my sons is 9, and I would be devastated if I were to lose him.

    Tyler Doohan is/was an extraordinary young man, may God rest his soul, and may his family find comfort in the fact that he was as brave as anyone.
    If you want to make God laugh, tell him your plans.

    My Family a house fire this past August. I and my Daughter ran through the flames on our way out, I can only imagine what it took for Tyler to face his fear and go back to help his Uncle.
    My prayers for his Family.
