Motivational Message:
"A Hero Can Be Anyone"

Commissioner Gordon:
  I never cared who you were...


  And you were right.


Commissioner Gordon:
  But, shouldn’t the people know the hero who saved them?


  A hero can be anyone.  Even a man doing something as simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a young boy’s shoulders to let him know that world hadn’t ended.  (Aircraft flies away)


Commissioner Gordon:
  Bruce Wayne?

We are in the final stretch of our MCM Race Week celebration.  It’s time to take the challenge square on and do what is required.


A hero can be anyone.  One small act of kindness can ignite a spark of hope within someone who desperately needs it.  It can also make a donor feel more connectedness to the world around them, knowing that they did something good.  These are seeds that can lead to greater things. 


This is the last call for donations!  To show your support, consider donating to our Fisher House Marine Corps Marathon Team (click here) or any of the great charity organizations listed below.


My final Freedom’s Light note will be after the race on Sunday.


Thank you for your continued support.

God Bless,
