Colonel Rick Rescorla: A True Patriot

Rick Rescorla, a true American hero of every sense of the word, was in the world trade center when it was attacked on 9/11. His story is truly humbling and should be taught to all people. As I mentioned before here, I couldn't hope to be half the man this guy is.

At the same time it's saddening that after surviving so much in his life, he's done in by the same evil he predicted. As they say: you don't see the face of God in disasters, you see it in the people who help those affected. Truly, God could be seen in Col. Rescorla. Because of his actions, only 3 Morgan Stanley employees died- and who knows how many others were saved by his actions.

If you read nothing else this week, read this man's story in awe an humility.
