Xander, you are the stuff of heroes, thank you Little Man. That girl is safe, and you are being parted out to save other kids.
God Bless you mate, you are the hero of the day.
Heroic little guy. RIP.
In the Savior’s arms he is this day.
This beautiful child gave his life for another. He is a true hero. He is resting in the arms of the Lord this moment and for wternity.
God bless you Xander, and your family.
Lot of dust in the air this evening, I have no more words.
Just a week or 2 ago a little girl saved her drowning brother from a pond but drowned herself. Very sad stories.
Sad yes, but stories like this make me proud. I should be so brave.
Remember them as heroes, and smile at the mention of their names. Pity is not for them, they have done more than most of us will ever, even if we live to be a hundred and make millions of dollars.
Xander, the man, is now one of G-d’s angels. He is not yet done with saving lives...... (tears)
People don’t become angels - ever. He’s better off as a saint in heaven than any angel will ever be as just an angel. Remember, no angel will ever get a resurrected, glorified body. That little boy-hero will.
I’m sure Xander has met the Lord and Our Mother Mary.
My heart breaks for his loss :( , but our loss is Heavens gain.
And the children shall lead. Suffer the little children to come unto Me.
God bless that little girl. I’m sure she was beyond overjoyed to meet our Lord. My heart breaks, but I also smile knowing they have received their glory from the Lord Himself.
God bless Xander. Greater love hath no man than one who lays down his life for his friends.
Heartbreak! You are sweet to post this. A story of the greatest virtue and even much greater reward for our little hero man- a saint of great price now. Blessings in Glory.
Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind. Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets. Matthew 22
And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love. 1 Cor 13
Greater love has no one than this, that he lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
May he Rest In Peace and our prayers are with his loved ones. John 15:13
We’re all humbled. With people so callous today, here’s a preschooler who was willing to risk his life to save another child. He is an angel on earth. But it’s so heartbreaking what happened as a result.
I’ve already shared tears about this once today. My heart is breaking for this family. God bless this boy. He’s in the arms of our dear Savior today in Heaven.
Yes, I know, it was just a sentiment. Angels can and do intervene in this our physical existence, but the saints can only intercede to G-d for His help, aware as they are of our lives here on Earth.
I would still like to think of Xander as an archangel guarding his little sister even now. Only a sentiment.
