Damn. It's too early to be this dusty in here. I don't know which made me tear up more, TFA and the accompanying video or the comments (with the exception of a couple of asshats) below TFA.

Ouch, my heart is hurty.

Then Tyler went back into the blaze to help his grandfather, who was disabled and would have been unable to get out of the home on his own. "By that time, the fire had traveled to the back of the trailer," Ebmeyer said at the time. "Unfortunately, they both succumbed to heat and smoke."
The pair were found together on a bed in the back room. It appeared that the boy was trying to lift his grandfather from the bed when he was overcome by the smoke and fire, fire officials said.



Right in the feels.

"RIP littlest fireman," is what my dad said the first time he couldn't get it up.

Farkin' dust in the office...
 
2014-01-30 11:56:05 AM
sure is smoky in here.

I am usually a heartless bastard, but that was rough.

It might be dusty in your office, but I'm welling up in perfect atmospheric conditions.

By the way CNN: every single goddamn Justin Beiber update doesn't need to be top banner "BREAKING NEWS".

Sleep tight, little man. Have good dreams and thanks for being so big. The world is less without you.

That is both the most awesome and sad thing I have read in a while.

So his wife and two girlfriends were in attendance?

God speed...little man.

Is this the thread where the Mexican cleaning woman hasn't dusted the room properly?

Stay classy GOD

Man that's gotta be rough to be his parents.  To know you raised such an awesome little boy and now he's gone.

This! I can troll most threads but this one would just be too much.

No, I don't remember that, because if I did remember that, I might start to ...to *sniffle*. Oh, goddamn it.

Dammit, why the hell is it so dusty in this airplane? STEWARDESS!

RIP Brother Doohan.

You've done your duty. You've served your family and community.

We got it from here.

People with hearts black enough to snark this kid don't visit publicly known sites like this.

You realize that they won't see that comment in here, right?

I have a 9 year old son, and I can't even imagine, how his parents must feel. I also can't imagine him doing something so brave and selfless. He MIGHT go back in to rescue his Xbox though.
 
2014-01-30 12:23:43 PM
I think  all the regular trolls should just toss a flower in for this one.  Damn allergies.
 
2014-01-30 12:23:48 PM
I lost a good friend who was laid to rest as a firefighter. That funeral was the hardest one I've ever been to. It was great to see his firefighter brothers and sisters lay him to rest with their honors.
 
2014-01-30 12:24:06 PM
RIP Tyler.
 
2014-01-30 12:25:27 PM
including basketball players from Wisconsin Silver Lake College, who were so moved by his story that they traveled to New York to be pallbearers.

Well, I don't think any of us saw that coming.
 
2014-01-30 12:26:37 PM
He's not the hero we wanted him to be, but the one he needed to be.
 
2014-01-30 12:27:24 PM
Can't bear to read the article--the original news just tore me up.
 
2014-01-30 12:33:15 PM
RIP little man.  You had one HUGE heart in you.

Thank you for your service.  Seriously, you crazy bastards are an awesome lot.

Trolling an actual bona fide hero that sacrificed themself to save others would be like the Immortals from Highlander fighting on Hallowed ground, its just not done.
 
2014-01-30 12:43:02 PM
I am always a black hearted troll but not now.
I don't even like kids.

Flights of angels help you to your rest, big man.
