AFRICANGLOBE – National hero Charles Ramsey saved the lives of three innocent women and one small girl held in captivity for up to ten years when he broke down the door of his next-door neighbor’s home.
People from all walks of life and businesses have reached out to Mr. Ramsey to offer him money and various rewards for his actions, but Ramsey wants no part of it.
In fact, local burger joints in the Cleveland area have created burgers in his name, even offering him free burgers for life.
Ramsey does not support any of these establishments and did not give these eateries the green light to use his name.
“Ramsey … wants everyone to know that he does not endorse the consortium of Northeast Ohio restaurants who are offering ‘Ramsey Burgers’ or who are promoting that Ramsey can receive free burgers from them for life,” said a lawyer representing Ramsey. “Ramsey encourages people to do things that will help the victims.”
Did you hear that? Not only did he initially do the right thing, but he also encourages people to do the right thing for the sake of doing the right thing, rather than for a reward.
Ramsey rescued Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight, who were all imprisoned for over a decade, as well as a six-year-old girl who was born in captivity.
Somebody also created a video game called “Burger Bash,” which allows users to play Ramsey as he saves the women from their captor, Ariel Castro. Making a joke out of a horrific situation, the game features Castro and Ramsey throwing burgers at each other in a fight over the women.
“I want everyone to know that I have nothing to do with this trash,” said Ramsey, who seems to be annoyed by his newfound fame more than anything.
It’s pathetic that people won’t give the man his privacy and are using his name to benefit their businesses. Hats off to Mr. Ramsey for being an absolute class act.
