Froze and forgotten

Bay City

I can not believe that our country has forgotten our heroes in battle. This man that I do not know, but grieve his death from freezing to death in his own home. This 93 year old veteran could not pay his electric bill, so the power company put a limiter device that shorted out when the power consumption over amp'ed. This man lived a life that he did not ask for anything, but gave everything. He was wounded in battle that keep him and his wife from having children and now there is no one who cares for his loss. This country and its people have sure forgotten the sacrifices that have been laid on our heroes from past conflicts and wars. I will give my father and mother a hugg tonight and thank them for their sacrifices for this country and for me and my brothers.

This story breaks my heart. I wonder how many selfish, self-centered Americans even care? I am 41 and I would often hear my grandmother say that she was living in a different World in her final years. What have we become?

Anyone with any compassion would be shocked and upset by this senseless death of a good man. I would ask that everyone reading about Mr. Schur get involved in their community by keeping an eye out for elderly, infirm, and other neighbors living by themselves or without support systems; offer to help them if you can, and if you can't, just be aware and alert authorities if you do not see the person for over a day. You might exchange phone numbers with neighbors and give them a brief call each day, and you might find out if they would like you to visit them, sign on to a notification program with their utility companies, or whatever. This kind of senseless tragedy CAN be prevented if people just put their caring into simple action. Any ideas, anyone else? Post them on social networking sites! Don't let Mr. Schur's death be just another statistic.
