Video I love: A hero named Philip

Once a week, I post a video I’ve seen recently that I’m loving. So here’s this week’s Video I love …

A man named Philip once fought for the country he loves. Now, he fights for equal rights for one of his four sons. It’s a beautiful speech. If you haven’t seen it yet, please take a moment to watch.

“The woman at my polling place asked me do I believe in equality for gay and lesbian people. I was pretty surprised to be asked a question like that. It made no sense to me. Finally I asked her, ‘What do you think I fought for in Omaha Beach?'”

Philip Spooner, an 86 year old WWII veteran

Now, that’s a hero.

Comment or send me an email. I’d love to hear from you.
