I know Greg Bugher. He and I have been best friends for many years. I am not really sure where the bloggers "Need to know basis" or "Emily" have got their motivation for writing ignorant and malice comments about Greg but I have some ideas which I will not lower myself in explaining as I do consider myself a virtuous person.
To put it mildly Greg Bugher would give anyone the shirt off his back. He would be there for anybody who needed him at any hour of the day or night. Without a doubt he is the best friend anyone could ever hope for! He is a man of integrity who puts God, family, and friends first. Since I have known Greg he has always put himself last and others first. He even proved to our nation one Easter morning that he would risk his life for total strangers, again, putting himself last.
Also, Greg never asked for any attention or recognition for his heroism nor has he ever received a single red cent for anything that had to do with the accident. He is not fond of fame or public attention therefore he has never sought notoriety for his selfless deeds.
I did have the honor of listening to Greg give an acceptance speech to several hundred of his peers and managers when Governor Mitch Daniels came to Delphi and gave Greg the Governors Heroism Award. Greg could have just accepted the award and not said much more than thanks. Instead he had the courage to stand up and explain how God was with him through it all and asked all present to consider letting God into their hearts. He was asked to give a talk at a church in town and there too he gave God all of the credit. He explained how miracles do happen, one of which he was blessed enough that God chose for him to play a roll in.
It is distressing to hear anyone try and degrade or humiliate Greg when he truly deserves the opposite. Rest assured though, as hard as it might seem for anyone who feels the need to drag Greg Bugher’s name through the mud for any reason that I will pray for you.
