*snip*

Sometimes when Rhonda hugged Hero she would softly pet her face and coo, “Justin, are you in there?” It was Rhonda’s gentle way of remembering their son and his last living connection to Hero. At one point, Hero wandered off and took a stroll in the backyard. All of a sudden, the clouds broke and a light began to solidify in a beam directly down on Hero — a kind of vertical halo.

Excerpt:

"I said, I want one of the puppies that Justin held in Iraq the night before he was killed. 'Rhonda, we can get you any dog you want. We'll get you a puppy, just name it, we'll get it.' I want one of those puppies that Justin held. And he just looked at me like, yeah, sure," Rhonda laughed."

Amazing, other wordly .. the photo of the dog in the light. Heartening and hopeful. RIP, Spec. Rollins. God bless all our brave military, comfort the families of the heroes who gave all. I needed a heartwarming, life affirming lift.

So what does anyone else see just above the shaft of light in about the middle of the pic?

An arm with the hand over the dog possibly looking like it is going to to pet the dog? Also a person attached to the arm in the shadow. It is likely an illusion of some kind but is that what you mean?

Okay - I saw this last time on another thread - and yes I believe that the light shaft is a miracle.

But now that you mention it - The light “bubble” with some lighter spots looks like a head, and a shoulder and arm coming down and bent, and the one ray of light is the leg. I’m not military, but from the movies - I would call it a “parade rest” stance. Well, a wide parade rest stance.

Or more like an X-Man stance (almost looks like an “X” over the upper “torso” of the “figure”. All of that I think”?” is just plays on light though (hence the quote marks!). But interesting - and one never knows.

Oh - one more thing - the light and dark blotches on the light bubble. Reminds me of his camo bandana.

That picture is ridiculous.
Its lens flare on a dirty plastic lens.
Grow up folks.

I see what appears to be the owner in full military gear looking at his dog.

True, but nuts will always be nuts, and if you have ever hunted in a light fog in the woods in the early fall, you have seen these so called light beams a million times. Loved to squirrel hunt when is was a kid.

I like it when the Big Man goes old school. Those Jebus sightings on Dorito chips and toast were getting so played out.

I can’t tell, but then again I’m blind without reading glasses and they’re upstairs.
