Did he yell insults at the poor kid and tell him that "pain is the sensation of weakness leaving the body" ?

notyomama: HideAndGoFarkYourself: I hate to be the cynic of the group, but this reeks of one of those PR type things where they take a photo and create some nonsense story to go along with it.  Like the little girl who supposedly died in the Boston Marathon while running for the kids from Sandy Hook.

I was wondering who was going to show up to piss all over this little feel-good story.  I guess it's your turn.


It is worth questioning, but who cares, she or he didnt mean to piss on it, its often done as propaganda

The important thing is the boy smiled, fark everyone elses feelings, sometimes childhood emotions are more powerful than the adult bullshiat we create.

// Im a dad, my son smiing usually involves game scores hehehehe I dont care, he smiled, my daughter smiles for artwork. It does not matter why a child smiles, just make the children smile. They will soon see the bullshiat behind the bullshiat behind the bullshiat, behind the bullshiat, if you educate them well.

Never been fond of the marines as a whole - but some of them - SOME of them - are the most impressive human beings on earth

I SALUTE this one in utter humility, and for all of which he stands for which he stands for. THIS is what a marine should be.

// son of an SAS paratrooper
/ not overly fond of those guys either, but some of them are pretty cool, my father was not.

Sadly, the military knows how to keep their... less savory people out of the limelight. That said, the Marines always seemed to have more honor and integrity than the U.S. soldiers I served with.


Marines have more criminals and crazies compared to other branches.

The only former Marine I know thinks Sarah Palin would make a great president.

Ridiculous statement for many reasons.


If you think that all military are upstanding people, then you haven't met enough of them yet. The military has plenty of dirt bags to go around.

For the 5k at the Venetian Festival in Charlevoix, Lcpl Kerr opted to run the event wearing boots and utes and carrying a ruck sack. Several minutes after the other Marines he was with had finished, Lcpl Kerr still had not crossed the line. They feared his extreme level of motivation may have caused him injury and/or fatigue resulting in him dropping out of the race. Moments before they ran back through the course to recover their fellow Marine, Lcpl Kerr came around the last turn along with this small boy. The boy had become separated from those who he had started the race with. He asked Lcpl Kerr, "Sir? Will you please run with me?". Throughout the course, Lcpl Kerr urged him on when the boy wanted to give up and ensured that the boy saw the course to completion where he was reunited with his party. By his unwavering commitment to help those in need through his ability to inspire others by his unequivocal level of motivation, Lcpl Kerr reflected great credit upon himself and was keeping in the highest traditions of the United States Marine Corps.

I love mah boys in blue :)
