mintzIf it’s possible for a feel-good story to emerge from the tragic shooting in Oregon that saw ten people die, including the gunman who was killed by police, it would be the story of Army veteran Chris Mintz.

And the generosity of the American people.

The vet is being hailed as a real life hero after being shot seven times while charging to block a door to prevent the crazed gunman from entering the room, according to the New York Daily News.

His aunt, Wanda Mintz, said after being shot several times, Mintz cried out to the shooter, “It’s my son’s birthday!” — Oct. 1 was his son’s sixth birthday — but the killer showed no mercy, shooting him two more times.

Miraculously, Mintz survived!

“He just tried to do the right thing,” the aunt said of her nephew. “That’s just how he is. If he sees someone who needs help, he just helps. He just tried to intervene.”

Obama forgot to include someone on his school
shooting blame list – and it didn’t go unnoticed!

In addition to seven gun shot wounds, Mintz somehow broke both his legs, prompting his cousin, Derek Bourgeois, to create a GoFundMe page to help pay for the medical bills, the International Business Times reported.

“Yesterday, my cousin Chris Mintz was shot 7 times while trying to protect others from the gunman at Umpqua Community College,” Bourgeois wrote. “He is a father, a veteran, a student, and now, he’s a hero.”

“While Chris is not the type of person to ask for it, he is going to need all of the help he can get while he recovers!” he added. “Myself and many family members have been swamped with requests for us to set up a GoFundMe page, so this is us fulfilling that request, and we appreciate your concerns and assistance.”

The page had a modest goal of $10,000, but as of Saturday morning, less than 24 hours after being set up, it had already topped half a million dollars — $570,176 to be exact.

It’s safe to say that in these troubling times, America still loves a hero. God Bless you Chris Mintz, and may the donations continue to flow.
