Above & beyond…

Sometimes compassion rises to heroic heights.

War & Peace

War & Peace

 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.

One thought on “Above & beyond…

  1. It would be good, in the interests of relations with the people out there, if this story could be spread about in the region.
    I’ll keep my political views to myself; but this shows that, no matter what anyone thinks about what’s going on in the region, there is caring and compassion in the midst of it all.
    Well done John !
    If the little girl has nobody else now…. ?
