Nothing living should ever be treated with contempt. Whatever it is that lives, a man, a tree, or a bird, should be touched gently, because the time is short. Civilization is another word for respect for life.
~ Elizabeth Goudge (1900 - 1984)
Creator, Saviour, Life-Giver. The Trinity. Father, Son and Holy Ghost ~ once again, the Holy Trinity shows its Saviour aspect in the person of one Muelmar Magallanes, a very brave young man, only 18 years old, who saved more than 30 people before perishing saving the last ones, a mother and infant.
God bless his soul, and forgive him all his sins, and bring him to a place of refreshment and light, where there is no pain, suffering nor sorrow, but Life everlasting.
From The Age (AU)
QUOTE Standing next to his coffin, Mr Magallanes' parents paid tribute to their son.
"He always had a good heart," said his father, Samuel.
"We had already been saved. But he decided to go back one last time for the girl."
His mother, Maria Luz, wept as she described her son as incredibly brave.
"He saved so many people, but ended up not being able to save himself." UNQUOTE
