For Nathaniel Glenn Key
« on: January 24, 2010, 04:06:45 PM »
This is terrible!  >:( :'(

Quote
(Jan. 22) -- On a cold Friday afternoon, Dec. 11, 2009, my life was forever changed.

The day started like any other, as we got our family up and each of our children to school. The afternoon rolled around, and I waited, as I did every school day, for my precious 5-year-old son, Nathaniel Glenn Key, to hop off the bus and come happily home.

Nathan Key was killed as he was getting off his school bus by a driver who decided to pass the stopped bus.
But that day, a driver decided to recklessly pass and ignore the school bus' flashing red lights and stop sign and drive around it.

He hit and killed Nathan, just a few feet from our house, just days before Christmas.

Many prayers for his soul, and for his grieving family! :'(

Memory Eternal.

Lord have mercy and ease the grief of his loved ones, as well as the driver who must be in agony, as well.

Help us, save us, have mercy upon us, and protect us, O God, by your grace.

Conquer evil men by your gentle kindness, and make zealous men wonder at your goodness. Put the lover of legality to shame by your compassion. With the afflicted be afflicted in mind. Love all men, but keep distant from all men.
—St. Isaac of Syria

Lord, have mercy on the victim's soul, on the family, and on the perpetrator.
"O Cross of Christ, all-holy, thrice-blessed, and life-giving, instrument of the mystical rites of Zion, the holy Altar for the service of our Great Archpriest, the blessing - the weapon - the strength of priests, our pride, our consolation, the light in our hearts, our mind, and our steps"
