Tommy, I regret we never had the chance to watch those football games, Pitt vs WVU.

We certainly had our opinions about those two teams. Glad we agree on the Steelers. I hope your community knows what a hero they have. I'll miss you.

The Courage to Stand up For What You Believe

To the family of Thomas W. Bennett,

I was inspired by your son’s story because he was a conscientious objector. I also do not believe in killing others. He stood up for his beliefs. He cared about human life enough that he wouldn’t kill other people, so he became a medic to help them instead. My mom is a paramedic and she has a tough job. He did a very important job. He didn’t stop there though. He went above and beyond Because he also gave his life trying to save others. I hope that one day I will get to meet him in the resurrection. (John 5:28, 29; Rev. 21:4)
