Photo of fallen hero’s dog

Something nice for the holiday weekend which might bring some hope and joy to everyone. ABC News’ Kimberly Launier was in New Hampshire doing a photo shoot as part of an interview with the Rollin family. Their son Justin lost his life in Iraq, but his dog made it out and back home to Justin’s family. That’s when something special happened.

I was filming soldier Justin Rollin’s parents Skip and Rhonda playing with their dog Hero, whose rescue from the Iraq War zone where Justin died was nothing short of a miracle.

Sometimes when Rhonda hugged Hero she would softly pet her face and coo, “Justin, are you in there?” It was Rhonda’s gentle way of remembering their son and his last living connection to Hero. At one point, Hero wandered off and took a stroll in the backyard. All of a sudden, the clouds broke and a light began to solidify in a beam directly down on Hero — a kind of vertical halo.
The photo she took, not retouched or photoshopped, is nothing short of breathtaking.

Who is to say how the spirit moves and what brings grace, comfort and solace to the families of the fallen? Dogs are special, as I can well attest, and they form a bond with their families which often stretches beyond the bounds of “normal.” Is Justin’s spirit here with this dog, Hero, giving comfort to his parents in their grief?

I’m not going to argue against it.
