Teacher Grew Beard for 10 Years Till Bin Laden Killed
When he heard about Osama's death, he says, "I spent my first five minutes crying and then I couldn't get it off fast enough."
On Sunday night, for the first time in 10 years, 50-year-old middle school science teacher Gary Weddle shaved his beard. The Washington state resident was so affected by the events of 9/11 that in the aftermath, he forgot to shave for a week. He then vowed he wouldn't shave until Osama Bin Laden was either killed or captured. Weddle told the Capital News that after he heard about Bin Laden's death, "I spent my first five minutes crying and then I couldn't get it off fast enough."
Isn't it ironic how with the beard Weddle kind of came out looking like Bin Laden? And can't you just imagine the faces of his junior high students when they saw their teacher on Monday?
