So while Fridays may be awesome, the severe weather moving across parts of the U.S. this week is not.
But it is leading off today's show.
Earlier in the week, some states got hit with huge snowfalls.
A blizzard warning in Denver and South Dakota; the snow and ice knocked down power lines and trees.
The storm system moved east bringing wind, rain, and reports of tornadoes with it.
At least one person was killed. Several others were injured when twisters touched down in Missouri, Arkansas, Mississippi,
Wildfires, tornadoes, snow, ice, flooding—all of that probably sounds crazy that it's all happening at the same time.
This is a symptom of the season, and as temperatures change, so does the weather.
CNN meteorologists say that in spring, we should expect the unexpected.
Emil Kapaun served in the U.S. Army during World War II and the Korean War.
He didn't carry a rifle .
He never fired a shot.
Kapaun was a captain.
He was also a Roman Catholic chaplain—Father Kapaun.
During the Korean War, when his unit moved, Captain Kapaun stayed behind to help the wounded.
He knew there was a risk of being captured by the enemy and that's what happened.
As a prisoner of war, Captain Kapaun helped save other prisoners from being shot.
He snuck around the camp, ministering to other prisoners.
He snuck out of the camp, stealing food, and sneaking it back for others.
Eventually, he died as a prisoner.
This week his actions earned him the medal of honor, the military's highest award for valor.
President Obama presented Kapaun's nephew at the White House yesterday,
saying he couldn't imagine a better example for all of us, whether in uniform or not.
Is this legit?
The Roman Empire once covered parts of Africa, Asia, and Europe.
The empires stretched across areas of three continents.
On a modern map, you can go from England down to Egypt, and from Syria across to Spain.
All of that was part of the Roman Empire.
Two thousand years ago, one out of every four people on earth lived under Roman law.
The empire, of course, is long gone,
but archaeologists are digging up relics from the empire to this day and what they find can give a glimpse at what life was
like back then.
