The Story of a True American Hero

 

Strength in Conditioning for Thursday, March 20, 2014

Yesterday may have been superhero day, but today we take off the capes and masks and workout like a true American Hero. To celebrate SICFIT Scottsdale’s America Day, we will be testing our physical and mental strength with a workout dedicated to one of these heroes: Murph. Navy Lieutenant Michael Murphy was a humble, courteous, and driven soldier, motivated by his calling to stand up for justice in the face of, what he describes, as bullies. Michael Murphy’s tenure in standing up for what is right began long before he became a member of the Navy SEALS. Even in grade school he is remembered for intervening when a group of bullies attempted to enclose a special needs student into a locker and when a homeless man was being harassed by Murphy’s peers.

Michael Murphy died courageously in Afghanistan on June 28th, 2005, at 29 years of age. In the midst of battle, Murph braved oncoming bullets to reach radio contact to call for reinforcements that would eventually save his comrades from an otherwise dire situation. Till his moment of death, Michael Murphy continued to fight for justice against oppressive bullies.

As we struggle through this workout today, let us remember the sacrifice that Lieutenant Michael Murphy made for us, and all those who are victim of injustice around the world.
