People like this should be commended for their steadfastness and should serve as examples to the rest of the Church: We show love...

    Life or death was determined by the answer to a single question: are you a Christian?

The film includes three local actors who are playing the parts of the three...

    The Teacher Chose Death In an act of unlimited devotion and dedication, to the bitter end, an elderly teacher insisted on remaining with his students. He protected them, bandaged their wounds, and with his death, saved their lives. Children who escaped from the school told of how they owed their lived to elderly Yanis (Ivan) Kanidis, age 74 – a man of Greek origin who worked as a gym teacher at the school. He was among the hundreds of teachers, students and parents taken hostage last week when Chechen rebels invaded the large school. On Thursday, in what was an...
