The Great Exchange - The Golden Thread

I started a repeat/running post here about stories of death/sacrifice awhile back. Here's another great exchange/golden thread story I've found - once again by Bill Reilly.

Here's the full story of a guy names Barry Scott who made his life about sacrifice - a golden thread. A snap shot:

"Barry, the 145-pound Hummer gunner vs. the hell of Baghdad? He was nearly blown up twice, yet couldn't wait to get back on Skype to tell his wife, Amber, about it. "I'm still breathing!" was his motto. "That's what counts!"

Barry, the tiny cop vs. the mean streets of Maryvale, Phoenix's most violent precinct, where he lived and worked? He'd come back from some close shave and call his best friend, Derek Frader, at 3 a.m. to tell him about it. "We'd hear gun shots every night," Amber says. "Everybody told us to move." But Barry loved the idea of helping people in trouble. I'm still breathing! That's what counts!"
