Even out of the most horrendous tragedies, love and hope can always be found.
A candid photo taken of a pastor comforting a grieving veteran beside a makeshift memorial shortly after the massacre that killed four marines on Thursday is making a stunning tribute for both what Americans are feeling – and for what they’re made of.
A pastor knelt down beside the man and started praying with him, WKRN-TV, reported.
“Why? Why would you try to hurt the people that volunteer to protect you?” the veteran told WKRN.
“The people that would take a bullet for you… you try to [kill] them?
“That doesn’t make sense to me.”
The tragedy has left a nation stunned and in mourning. But the veteran’s touching words, and the Pastor’s kind gesture, remind us of the truly good in the world – and good will prevail.
