Doss enlisted as a soldier during World War II but was ostracized by his colleagues due to his pacifist beliefs and stance. He later went on to earn the respect of his colleagues and superiors for his bravery, selflessness and compassion after he risked his life to save 75 men in the Battle of Okinawa.

When hashtag Y-O-L-O trended I was caught up in the frenzy and lived my life to the fullest since there was only one to live.

Besides only God knows those that would make it to heaven! Continue reading
