    Status Update

    By John Glenn

     

    I don't want to know his name. I don't want to see his face. I don't want to know his life's history, his back-story, who his family is, where he went to school, or what he liked to do in his spare time. I don't want to know what "cause", if any, he was fighting for. I don't want to know why he did it, or may have done it, or what possessed him to carry out his actions. I don't want to know. Because that's what he really wants. I'll be damned if I'm going to give him what he wants.

    Put him on trial, but don't cover it. Tell me when you decide to jail him for three lifetimes - because that number matters. That's the number of lives he has to now pay for. That's all I want to know about him. Nothing else.

    Instead, tell me about the first responders who ran towards the fray, within seconds, fearless. Tell me about the ones wearing the yellow volunteer jacket, or the neon police vest, or even the ones in the regular everyday t-shirt who became a helper. Tell me the story about the first responder who held gauze over a wound until they made it to the hospital. Tell me the story about the volunteer who held the hand of the injured spectator until they got into the ambulance. In six months, tell me the story of those who lost a limb, who beat the odds, pulled through countless surgeries, and are learning to walk again. Tell me the story about the love, the compassion, and the never-ending support of thousands, millions, of people who support the victims here. Tell me their stories. Tell me everything you can, because they are the ones that matter. Tell me of the good that they have done, are doing, and will continue to do, regardless of... No, not regardless of, in spite of. In spite of that someone who would do them harm. Because that's what freedom in this country means. It means coming together in the hardest of times, even in the face of unfathomable adversity, to make life better for all those around us.

    Tell me the good stories. That's all I want to hear. Please like and share!

  • Salute A Soldier

    Posted by Bear

    Every Monday morning, the Y100 morning show does a military salute. We would love to salute your soldier, marine, airman or navy/coast guard person. He/She does not need to be a relative. You can submit a neighbor, classmate etc.

    The only requirement is that the person is on active duty or currently serving in the guard or reserves.

    I need name, rank, branch of service, where they are serving and perhaps where they have been stationed also. Let me know thier hometown and where they graduated from and a little information about them. I need a picture too...this is a must.

    It's a very cool thing and our men and women in uniform from Wisconsin love it. We will let you know when we will be doing your persons military salute so you and they may hear it and beam with pride!

    Send your soldier salute to bear.obrien@wncy.com. Y100 loves our troops and we are honored to salute them. Please send this info to friends.

     

    I will look forward to hearing from you.
