Merlin German: American Hero
I found this on Amy Proctor's website and was well inspired and thought I would share it here. Merlin German was a sergeant in the Marine Corps who was hit by an IED in Iraq in 2005. The explosion left him with burns over 97% of his body and nearly dead. Merlin battled back to life through unimaginable physical obstacles, depression, hope and finally resolution that his example could help other people to be inspired in their own lives. His life really did inspire people and let's pray that his Merlin's Miracles continues to touch others. Let's continue to pray for all of those who sacrifice so much for all of us. We might take too much for granted!
Merlin German died unexpectedly on April 11, 2008 after minor surgery that was not life threatening. Before his death, he created Merlin’s Miracles, a charity to help burned children and their families. His legacy and tough spirit live on through this charity.
