Support This True Hero

4/15/2009   Comment on This

I had James Mullen on my show the other night/morning. He is the Chicago disabled police officer who took a bullet in the face in 1996. This man has been through sheer hell and torture. He has had four heart attacks, lives in a wheelchair, and can't go outside in the cold because his body is now cold-blooded because of the shooting.

He was on the show to promote his new applesauce, which is close to his heart. It is his mom's recipe. I bring this to your attention not to feel sorry for him but to learn from the example he is setting. There are no words to describe his attitude. He is more than positive and grateful for his life. He has a wonderful wife who is a detective in the Chicago police department. He has a 12 year old daughter who was only three months old when he was shot. He is truly happy.

Here is the $64,000 question: if he is happy upbeat and positive, what the hell is wrong with many of you who go around with the glass half empty? Most of you can drive and use your limbs to do all of the things we take for granted. Man-up, folks. This recession will make all of us stronger or it will kill you. In most cases, you'll be better off for it.

In the meantime, go to and buy some apple sauce. It's good for you and you'll be helping a true hero out. We all clap at sports events and have great lip service for our heroes, but at the end of the day we do nothing for them most of the time. I thank you and Jim Mullen does as well.
