Time for our “CAN I GET AN AMEN” story of the day! At “THE MORNING BULL” we believe in the power of positivity. We believe there are more good people than bad in the world, and we believe that goodness should be celebrated when you find it!
We all raise our kids the best we can, and we hope that if the need ever arises our kids will be able to do the right thing – especially in a crisis…like the one 19 yr old Charlotte Heffelmire found herself in and has become one of the top stories of the year.
You see Charlotte was home last Thanksgiving break from college. Her dad, Eric, was in the garage working on his truck. He said, “I was on my back, face up, and I was trying to get some corroded brakes lines when apparently the jack slipped and fell down on me.” In that instant, Eric found himself pinned beneath that truck. But that’s when Charlotte ran into the garage – PICKED UP THE TRUCK by herself and let her dad crawl out.
But here is crazy part – when the truck fell it punctured the gas tank, causing an explosion and burst into flames setting the house on fire. So Charlotte jumped in the now 3 wheeled truck “put it four wheel drive and just mashed on it with three wheels and just drove out. It left a nice groove on the asphalt,” – then went back inside the burning house and got all her family out including her sister’s baby daughter.
Charlotte’s bravery was recognized by the Fairfax County Fire and Rescue gave her a Citizen Lifesaving Award. Making One of BEST “AMENS” OF THE YEAR!
So where ever you are in the kitchen or in the car…can throw your hand in the air, “CAN I GET AN AMEN” for this … Always focused on the good news, and if you ever see a story that would make a great AMEN email it in at George@thebullhouston.com
