Redeeming the name “Hasan.” May Jesus Christ receive this boy into the highest heaven.
Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends. John 15:13
What a heartbreaking story. It always seems as though the most decent people of any society are the first on the chopping block.
Did he even get mentioned on the MSM?
I do not know. I live outside the CONUS and do not frequent the MSM web sites.
I have seen the story repeated on several different web sites, though.
