Totally Worth It

Dead man, hero, and not a swimming safety expert

Do you know when it is appropriate to dive into unknown waters headlong?  Never.  A shattered ankle or torn ACL you can recover from relatively easily.  Relative to dying, that is.  But do you think Michael Patterson would trade lives with this little girl again?  I suspect not.

I hope he believed in Jesus as his personal savior because you don’t get credit for being a hero in Hell…but you do make me proud to be a man, because there was one willing to make the trade pro bono.  Good on you Patterson.  Rest in peace.
