Kimberly Munley, a Heroine

Some days are so dark, some activities so despicable it seems hard to find anything of which to be positive. Yesterday was such a day, what with the Fort Hood shooting rampage that left 13 persons dead and 30 injured; the worst tragedy ever seen on any of our military bases. But there was at least one glittering light of hope and honor when:

Fort Hood police Sgt. Kimberly Munley, a 34-year-old wife and mother, and her partner responded within three minutes of the reported gunfire and shot the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan, four times despite being shot herself, Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said.

This civilian police officer is being widely hailed as a hero, for she doubtless prevented a wider loss of life. It is a mercy that she is expected to make a full recovery herself. I salute her bravery and her courage. forthoodheroIt is reported that after she began firing, Hasan whirled around and physically charged her. Holding a gun in each hand, he fired, the bullets hitting her in the thighs and wrist. She was the one, though, who four times shot the alleged gunman, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan.

I pray for her complete recovery, for all the others who were injured, for the morale of our military personnel, and for the families of those whose loved ones are among the fallen.

Still full of life and ready to be on the move, Shirley at 83 years old feels blessed to have lots of energy and to be full of optimism. She was married to Jerry for 63 years, and grieves yet at his death in August of 2019. They have 4 children, 13 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren...all beautiful and highly intelligent--of course. :)

Like all American heroes she will say, “I was just doing my job.” On that day Kimberly Munley and Amber Bahr showed the world the hearts and courage of the lioness. May they both recover from their injuries and rejoin their friends and families.
