We need more men like this!

From Yahoo News:

“A Florida Chick-fil-A employee is being praised for his heroic actions when he stopped a man from allegedly carjacking a woman and a baby.

The employee, Mykel Gordon, was working at a location in the Fort Walton Beach area Wednesday afternoon when the woman started screaming for help, according to statements from Chick-fil-A and the Okaloosa County Sheriff’s Office.

The woman told deputies that she was getting her nephew out of his car seat when the suspect, William Branch, approached her, an incident report stated.

The woman said Branch was carrying a stick in his hand and was “wielding it in a way she believed he would use it as a weapon,” according to the report.

The woman said she stepped back away from Branch and he lunged at her, grabbed her keys from her waistband and got inside her car, according to the report.

“When the victim began screaming for help an employee at Chick-fil-A ran to intervene,” the sheriff’s office wrote on Facebook.”

Home of the Free because of the Brave. It takes folks who have had enough of this “BS” to stand up and do something about it. We are shock-absorbers for Christ. We need to act and be one. And seems this young man stepped in and was one.

Bravo to Mykel Gordon. Knowing we have young men in the next generation, certainly gladdens my heart. Way to go Mykel!
