Take a minute to pause over this one...

The boy on the right reminds me so much of my son Gabriel who is now about the same age.
I hope that all of my sons and daughters grow up to be as brave as the boy on the left.

My freshman history teacher in high school had this picture hanging up in his classroom. He explained that this was taken just as the before the Berlin Wall was constructed. The boy's family had made it across to the West. Orders were to shoot anyone who tried to cross. The soldier was subsequently removed from his post and there is no record of what became of him.

"Greater Love has no one than this: that one lay down his life." John 15:13
