He protected her on their anniversary

October 5, 2017

In these days when the left has turned being male into a hate crime, recent terrible events have shown that traditional American males do still exist, whether they are risking their lives to save their neighbors from floods and hurricanes or sacrificing themselves to protect their loved ones from a madman’s bullets.

At the link is the moving story of 54-year-old construction worker Jack Beaton of Bakersfield, California, who was celebrating his 23rd anniversary with his wife Laurie when he recognized the gunfire at the Las Vegas concert. He told her to get down on the ground, then shielded her with his own body. His last words were, “I love you, Laurie.” His wife said he wasn’t the kind of man who would’ve wanted publicity, but she wants the world to know how he had protected her, just as he always had. She said, ‘‘I knew every day that he would protect me and take care of me and love me unconditionally, and what he did is no surprise to me, and he is my hero.”

In case you’re thinking I’ve already told this story, no: the story from yesterday was about another husband who sacrificed his life to shield his wife from bullets. They were from Tennessee and celebrating their first anniversary.

The left may bray on about “toxic masculinity,” but that kind of love, bravery and self-sacrifice is the very opposite of “toxic” to the people these men gave their lives to protect. Even more amazing is that despite what you hear in the media, they are not an anachronism or the last of a dying breed. Recent events have proven that America is still filled with heroic men like these, of all ages. And thank God for that.

    God bless those two brave men who was only doing what God's word instructs every head of his house to do, and that is to protect your wife and kids. This country is so political correct that in their eyes there's something wrong with men being protector and provider for their families. With all of this evil and non-sense that's going on in this country and world that there are guys out there not a shame of their God ordain role in their families. I extend my prayers and my condolences to these wives. And by the way Mike you're doing great work. So keep it real and continue to push godly conservative viewpoints. God bless.

    Mike, I would never be obnoxious to LGs,
    however, our family want to vomit when we see the agenda of the radicals for example Food Network, which has in the last 10+ years begun to proselitize viewers including innocent young kids.
    We turn off shows like that, it is offensive and disgusting to flaunt that behavior.
    Statistcally children of gay parents are beginning to come forward to voice their feelings about how upsetting it is to be raised in such an environment. I suppose it isn’t any worse than all the people who beget innocent children and they are not
    parenting them, have no intention to be
    a healthy loving family! It is all about
    instant gratification, immorality and we know sometime they will be held accountable. This world is sooo out of control.

    The shootings were beyond horrendous.
    God Bless all those people, their families,
    and friends whom were/are affected.
    I am so glad that she survived and so sorry for her loss.
    We have been married 48 years, and I am
    thankful that my husband would also
    protect me and our family. May God watch over all of “US”.

    We are looking forward to your show.
    We all are proud of the strength and tenacity that Sarah exudes. We know you
    and your wife deserve much credit.
    We always love your positivity and smile,
    it makes my day.

    So sick of the nongender craze. I love your romantic story, and thank God we still have heroes. Sick of white males getting a bad rap. So few of them are left on news shows, weather, even sports news or stars in action movies. Commercial about how great women are: because they EAT and OWN it. What does that even mean??? They're fat? As a woman I find this commercial insulting and the most ridiculous excuse to praise women I have ever heard. In all of the schools I go into as a sub teacher, there are mostly women. Do men complain and file suits of not getting hired? No. Women whine and complain Much more than men.. Bring you daughter to work day? Bring your DOG to work day? But never Bring your son to work day.....
