Hello! I hope everyone's weekend was full of fun and laughs, with little to no stress!
I have another birthday to celebrate today, so Happy Birthday to Glenn Karrmann! Glenn is a huge Green Lantern fan, and it just so happens that the round shape of my mug can be made to look like the Green Lantern logo. There is not much substance to the image, but what it represents is quite substantial.
For those that do not know, the Green Lantern represents willpower, in addition to honor, nobility, self-sacrifice for the greater...heroism. It is fitting that Glenn has chosen the Green Lantern as his favorite fictional hero, for he embodies many of the philosophies of the Green Lantern.
A former member of the Navy, Glenn selflessly served his country, like so many brave men and women in the U.S. His heroism continues on even in retirement. Just recently, he encountered a wrecked vehicle on the side of the interstate. Without hesitation, he rushed in to find a man trapped inside the vehicle. With flames rising, Glenn sacrificed his own safety and did everything he could to free the man. Unfortunately, real life tragedies do not always end happily as they do in the comics. The car was wrapped around the man's legs and Glenn, with the help of others, could not free him.
There are many that would have froze in a similar situation, and it is just a further testament to the type of guy Glenn Karrmann is. I am grateful to know this man.
Thanks for being a hero, an inspiration, and a role model to all you encounter Glenn. I hope your birthday is a memorable one!
