  1. How about our heroes doubling down their winning spree in mens marathon with a one and a two! Folks, I am on the moon now! That’s right. You don’t find me here on earth! I’m up there on the moon busting the moon dance!

  2. Dear Editors,

    Is it possible to put such heroic stories of young men and women on top of your website page either in the Latest or Featured section? We need to lighten up with such uplifting stories. There could more victories in the coming days. With all these depressing coming from the old country we need such stories of gallantry to jump up and down in joy! Thank you very much. Blessings to you and your family.
