    How about Officer Mark Dallas of Dixon, Ill.
    He shot & killed a school shooter in northern Il.
    But good news is no news, so the liberal media won't mention it

    Funny. I heard about it on a "fake news" platform. Maybe you weren't listening but instead just regurgitating what you hear on Hannity?

    K, well just so you know, both of these hero's were covered on numerous liberal media outlets.

    Funny, first you're telling me you heard it as fake news. Now you're saying its on liberal news sites too.
    So, it's not fake news? Funny how you'll blast me for that .
    Oh well. Off to work

    Doing the math, I saved well over 100,000 babies in college. Not bad for a young punk looking to make a nickel!

    Giving blood every week for 60 years is an incredibly selfless act.

    Mr. Harrison, Good for you!

    I read that also, it deserves its own topic. Funny how the media is not shouting how a gun saved so many people.

    Why don't you start a new one instead of derailing this one?

    The man did a lot of good with his donations.

    Put his donations in this light, only around 2% of the population eligible to donate blood, ever do. That is just so wrong. It's hard to imagine that so many are that lazy, or self centered, that they cannot give pint of blood, and an hour to donate it, ever 56 days.

    I wish I could still donate blood, but many like myself, who lived in England, are no longer allowed to donate blood, or organs, due to our possible exposure to "mad cow disease.

    Too bad, I had just donated my 10th gallon, when they banned us.

    I congratulate all who have given blood for doing so. However I stopped doing so over 45 years ago. I had been giving blood from high school, college and through the service time and continued to do so when I returned to the working world. While working on my 6 Gallon Pin, I had a dump truck make a turn in front of me on my motorcycle almost severing my leg. After a month in the hospital when I got home, I received a bill for 2 units of blood, (it was quite a high amount for the time) and I questioned it because I had been donating for almost 10 years. The hospital said Red Cross charged them and Red Cross said that was a normal charge. That was the end of my donations except a couple of times when a friend or someone I knew need donors.

    The purpose of giving of yourself is not to receive. The Red Cross runs a very expensive and as you know, necessary operation.

    Maybe Mr. Harrisons story can free you to find it in your heart to start donating again?

    Think of all the costs associated with gathering blood from donors. You have to pay the nurses, storage, transport, advertising, data compilation and inventory. It may be free for you to give it to them, but they have to pay a lot for actually using it.

    I donate whenever I see one of their trucks around town. Usually a couple times a year.
