Marine Shows Extreme Selflessness

Courtesy of Facebook

Semper Fidelis means always loyal.  It is the cornerstone of the U.S. Marine Corps.  It mentions nothing of selflessness and sacrifce.

Nowhere was the values of selflessness and sacrifice more aptly demonstrated than when Lance Cpl. Myles Kerr helped a little boy finish a 5K race.

Both were running in the Jeff Drench Memorial 5K in Charlevoix, Michigan.  9 year old Brandon Fuchs had become lost from his party.  Lance Cpl. Kerr put aside everything to help motivate Brandon to finish the race. Kerr finished the race with the slowest time for his age group.

Thousands have been drawn to Kerr’s selflessness by Seal Of Honor, a Facebook page which posted the picture of Kerr and Fuchs together.  Seal Of Honor was established on Facebook to commemorate the life of Navy Lt. Michael P. Murphy, who lost his life fighting in Afghanistan.

Kerr was surprised that his act of kindness drew a huge social media reaction. He responded on Twitter by saying, “I was just doing what any man would do, but thank you!”

Kerr’s actions remind me of one of my favorite quotes from Abraham Lincoln. “Never does a man stand so tall as when he stoops to help a child.”
