We were all almost left without ‘Daddy’, this morning. My heart is still pounding, over hearing the story. My husband was working in a bad area late last night, and witnessed two tuffs beating up, and likely robbing a poor man inside of his car.
He pulled behind, and looked over, and one of the guys came towards his truck. He pulled out a gun, and as my husband then went forward, he pointed his gun at the windshield, and shot at him two times.
Luckily he missed, and as the vehicle started to pass them by, both guys started running towards the back of the truck which was open, trying to hop inside, and likely beat or kill my husband. Only one of them, managed to take hold of the backside of the slow moving vehicle, which then picked up speed, and the guy fell off the back bumper, and the other guy then shot at him from behind, leaving a bullet hole inside of the truck, not far from where my husband sat.
My husband then raced out of there, and called the police, to go and try and save the poor guy he was forced to leave behind. He had slowed down, to help the man, but with a gun involved and being out numbered, not to mention, kids at home, he’d better never take a risk like that! We need him TOO much. It’s times like these, when I remember, just how much. I just wanted to share.
It’s a really scary world, and sometimes you don’t know, how much you appreciate your spouse, and even take them for granted at times, but then, something like this happens, and really puts things into perspective.
Mom will be worried every time dad goes to work from now on, that is for sure. I need to hit lotto, or patent an idea…SOMETHING!
