With the recent destruction in the mid-west from heavy storms and tornadoes, Sheep Dog took their organizations mission to task. Here is a shot shared by Propper of the groups members helping out in Southern Indiana. A quote from the organizations website sums up their viewpoint on why they do what they do:
“Here is how the sheep and the Sheep Dog think differently. The sheep pretend the wolf will never come, but the Sheep Dog lives for that day. After the attacks on September 11, 2001, most of the sheep, that is, most citizens in America said, “Thank God I wasn’t on one of those planes.” The Sheep Dogs, the warriors, said, “Dear God, I wish I could have been on one of those planes. Maybe I could have made a difference.” When you are truly transformed into a warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there. You want to be able to make a difference.” – On Sheep, Wolves, and Sheep Dogs – LtCol Dave Grossman (US Army), author of On Combat
