Once a week I write about heroes, and in today’s military it isn’t tough to find them. They are all around us. But every so often I run across a story about people who don’t wear a uniform and who, although not in the military, are still heroes in my eyes.
Bennett and Vivian Levin are such people.
What they did last year for the Army-Navy game, and for the benefit of people who would qualify as real heroes in anyone’s eyes, was truly remarkable and inspirational. Their tale first appeared in the Philadelphia Daily News just before Christmas – appropriate because it fits the spirit of the season. To encapsulate the article in a few words would do it injustice, so I invite you to read, “Here’s a Yule story that ought to be a movie,” by Ronnie Polaneczky.
(Thanks to Kathy, who sent me the story.)
