Our WARRIOR this week is 8 year old Tyler Doohan. Tyler died in a fire Monday morning in Upstate New York. Tyler is a WARRIOR WEDNESDAY because he died trying to save his disabled Uncle, who was trapped in the fire. Tyler is also our WARRIOR this week because he did save 6 other people, before he went back in to try and help his Uncle. An 8 year old with that much presence of mind is miraculous and it is tragic that someone so selfless and brave would perish before truly living a full life. I can only hope that Tyler’s WARRIOR efforts in saving those 6 people, will lead one of them to do something so great in the future that it will all make sense. Take this opportunity to hug your children. Take this opportunity to make sure you have a working fire extinguisher in your home, that your smoke detectors are working, and that you have a plan for your family in case of a fire.
