Her Only Calming Source – Master Sgt. John Gebhardt

Air Force Chief Master Sgt. John Gebhardt, of the 332md Expeditionary Medical Group at Balad, Iraq, cradles a young girl as they both sleep in the hospital. The girl’s entire family was executed by insurgents: the killers shot her in the head as well. The girl received treatment at the U.S. military hospital in Balad, but cried and moans often. According to nurses at the facility, Gebhardt is the only one who can calm down the girl, so he has spent the last several nights holding her while they both sleep in a chair.

Lord, Keep our Troops forever in your care. Give them victory over the enemy…Grant them a safe and swift return…Bless those who mourn the lost. – Anonymous

September 21st is the “International Day of Peace”. How we wish everyday could be peaceful here on earth. Unfortunately it is not, however as the song says, “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me”. Those wise words are true as true can be. Peace and kindheartedness must begin within ourselves first and then shared with others. So let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.
