2 Bloody Knees

"In 1994, Deborah Kemp stopped to fill her car with gas. As she left to pay the attendant, someone jumped in her car to steal it. Deborah fought back. The thirty-four-year-old woman was dragged for several blocks as she clung to the steering wheel. Kemp eventually pulled the man from the moving car and beat him with an anti-theft device until he begged her to stop. When police arrived on the scene, they determined that Deborah had two bloody knees while the thief had two broken legs and numerous head injuries.

Why did Deborah Kemp value her car that much? She didn't. Her six-year-old daughter Ashleye was in the backseat."

Do I love my kids that much? Do you?
