There is a forgotten hero, born and raised in Dublin, who gave his life in service to the ppl of Georgia...GSP Trooper John Dixon Morris. He was only 28 years old when he was killed in the line of duty, May 18th, 1982. Why should he be honored as a fallen hero? Because he was killed trying to get to the scene of a school bus crash. He would have been the first unit there. He gave his life trying to save children. He didn't know if there were injuries. He didn't how serious. All he knew was that there were children needing his help, and he gave his life trying to give it to them. He was a hero. Sadly, a forgotten hero for the most part. He was my brother, my hero. I miss Dicky Morris.
