Why do the mainstream media ignore stories like this ?

A
chaplain, who happened to be assigned to the Pentagon, told of an incident



that
happened right after Flight 77 hit the Pentagon on 9/11.





A
daycare facility inside the Pentagon had many children, including infants



who
were in heavy cribs. The daycare supervisor, looking at all the children



they
needed to evacuate, was in a panic over what they could do. There were



many
children, mostly toddlers, as well as the infants that would need to be



taken
out with the cribs.





There
was no time to try to bundle them into carriers and strollers. Just



then
a young Marine came running into the center and asked what they needed.



After
hearing what the center director was trying to do, he ran back out



into
the hallway and disappeared. The director thought, "Well, here we are,



on
our own."





About
2 minutes later, that Marine returned with 40 other Marines in tow.



Each
of them grabbed a crib with a child, and the rest started gathering up



toddlers.
The director and her staff then helped them take all the children



out
of the center and down toward the park near the Potomac.





Once
they got about 3/4 of a mile outside the building, the Marines stopped



in
the park, and then did a fabulous thing - they formed a circle with the



cribs,
which were quite sturdy and heavy, like the covered wagons in the Old



West.
Inside this circle of cribs, they put the toddlers, to keep them from



wandering
off. Outside this circle were the 40 Marines, forming a perimeter



around
the children and waiting for instructions. There they remained until



the
parents could be notified and come get their children.





The
chaplain then said, "I don't think any of us saw nor heard of this on



any
of the news stories of the day. It was an incredible story of our men



there.





There
wasn't a dry eye in the room. The thought of those Marines and what



they
did and how fast they reacted; could we expect any less from them? It



was
one of the most touching stories from the Pentagon.





It's
the Military, not the politicians, that ensures our right to life,



liberty,
and the pursuit of happiness. It's the Military who salutes the



flag,
who serves beneath the flag, and whose coffin is draped by the flag.





If
you care to offer the smallest token of recognition and appreciation for



the
military, please pass this on and pray for our men and women, who have



served
and are currently serving our country, and pray for those who have



given
the ultimate sacrifice for freedom.





Remember:
Freedom isn't free--It costs a great deal!!





GOD
BLESS OUR MILITARY

    It didn't happen, it is an internet hoax.

    News is not fairy tales.

    Probably because, while a very sweet story (and certainly indicative of the spirit of a Marine) and very moving, it didn't happen.

    One father, Col. William Stoppel, of the National Guard, stopped by to check on his son at the nursery, when he heard of the New York attacks. He was involved in evacuating the kids. His cubicle was destroyed in a direct hit by Flight 77 but, do to him checking on the status of his son at the time, he survived.

    About 7 Park Rangers showed up a couple of hours later and did form a ring around a group of kids, until they could be transported by an empty tour bus to a Virginia DoT facility to await their parents. Apparently the burly Marine story arose from the Park Rangers, but it didn't circulate until 2008.

    At the time, the were probably more concerned with "Planes hit buildings and kill thousands of people" than "A few people did a nice thing".

    Personally I think a Feel good story would have been more useful than all the fearmongering you got. But, as the old saying goes "If it bleeds it leads"...

    Doesn't fall into the "warmonger", "baby killer" narrative that the msm so embraces and adores.
