"These Christians were killed because of their faith in Oregon this week. I can help but wonder what I would say in that situation. A gunman asking whether or not students are Christian, and killing the ones that say yes. I’m humbled by the courage and conviction of those who did not deny Christ in that moment. God help me to live for You with the same boldness of these students who died for You."

Absolute heroes, all of them. Particularly those that said YES after the first person was shot for answering that. Eternal rest grant unto them, o Lord... :((((
