Ben Breedlove dies on Christmas Day.
« on: December 27, 2011, 08:59:32 PM »
A teenager died on Christmas day in Austin. He suffered a heart attack, the fourth of his short life. He had cheated death three times, he said.
 
Generally a heart attack victim, even a teenager, would garner little media attention — it's sad of course, tragic for his family and friends, especially since it happened Christmas day — but in this case, Ben Breedlove's death brought new attention to his significant and courageous life and to the idea that perhaps there is something more out there after we die.

Life is so very precious.  

May his rest be beautiful and full in the mercy and love of our Lord, may his Memory be Eternal.

I do too.

Lord have mercy.

Memory eternal.
My only weakness is, well, never mind

And you'll sleep, but they'll find you

Come back my dream into my arms, into my arms

London is drowning, and I live by the river

To God be the Glory in all things! Amen!

Only pray for me, that God would give me both inward and outward strength, that I may not only speak, but truly will; and that I may not merely be called a Christian, but really be found to be one. St.Ignatius of Antioch.Epistle to the Romans.
