David Marsh - a Store Clerk killed in Murray, Utah

David Marsh, age 62, died on March 23, 2015, at a hospital in Utah. 

David Marsh
David was a 25 year employee of a convenience store in Murray, Utah.  

On March 18, 2015, David was working the opening shift at the store which started at 6 a.m. Customers walked in and found him with a gunshot wound to the upper torso. 

Surveillance video shows two men in black hoodies and bandanas over their faces rushing into the store at 5:37 a.m.  David opened the cash register and gave the robbers some cash. As they were leaving the store, David threw the cash drawer toward one of the men. One gunman turned and shot David Marsh. 

If you have any information about this crime, you are urged to call the Murray police at 801-840-4000.

David was taken to a local hospital.  Tragically, he passed away 5 days later. 
Light a candle for David.  Light his way
to Heaven.

His employers said that David was part of their family. They are shaken. 

Friends stated that David treated everyone with respect. He was pleasant and uptempo with all of his customers. He liked to cheer people up. He liked to joke.

We put this question to the thieves who killed David: What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul?

David's loved ones are devastated over his senseless and tragic death. He was a loving and giving man. He will be forever mourned.

David is survived by many loving friends and family members including his sister, Sandi Baxter and his daughter, Kansas Marsh.

Pray for justice for David. 

Pray for all who go to work and who die there.

God save us from the thieves. They are killing us, Father.

Pray that David is in heaven. Pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.

Grieving doctor in California

Recently, an Emergency Medical Technician took a photo of a doctor outside of a hospital in California. 

The photo shows a doctor reacting to the death of a 19 year old kid who came to a hospital emergency room and who died there. 



The doctor is shaken and grief stricken over this kid's death and fell to his knees. 

After a few minutes he got himself together and went back to his duties in the ER. 

Many people have seen this photo and are moved by it and rightly so.  

We often forget that doctors, nurses, emergency medical technicians, firemen and police are exposed to dire and upsetting medical situations on a daily basis.

They see a lot of human suffering and tragedy.  They try to help. Often they are not successful and it causes them personal grief and pain. 

God bless the doctors and nurses and all who come to the aid of those in need. Amen.

Farkhunda - an Afghan woman beaten to death on the streets of Kabul

Farkhunda, age 27, died on a street in Kabul, Afghanistan, on March 19, 2015. 

Farkhunda - just before
she died
She was beaten to death by a mob of men who believed that she had burned pages of the Qu'ran. 

We have seen the video and are sickened that such an act could occur in the modern era. This woman was kicked, punched in the head, beaten with sticks and had huge stones thrown at her. A crowd of onlookers stared at the spectacle as if this was an everyday occurrence or as if they were watching a sporting event.  Police did not step in to intervene. 

Her corpse was then run over by a car, set on fire and thrown in what passes for a river in Kabul, but which is in reality an open sewer. 

There is not one shred of evidence to show that Farkhunda had burned the Qu'ran. She had recently finished a degree in religious studies and was preparing to take a teaching post. She got into a dispute with a mullah at a particular mosque in Kabul over the selling of religious amulets. She told women not to waste their money on them. The amulet sellers and the mullah were incensed and came up with the story that she was not a Muslim and that she had burned the Islamic holy book. 

She was dragged into the street and the crowd took over from there and killed her immediately without question. 

Many civilized citizens of Afghanistan are shaken and appalled at the murder of this
Taliban beating women.  What future does the
little girl at the right have in this country? 
young woman and are calling for justice. What was left of Farkhunda's body was placed in a coffin and carried to a gravesite by women instead of the usual male pallbearers at Afghani funerals. 

The Afghan government has called for an investigation, has arrested a number of men and has suspended 13 police officers from duty. 

What sort of country is this where women are beaten to death on the streets of the capital city and almost everyone just shrugs their shoulders and thinks that this is just the way it is? 

The minute that the last American or NATO soldier leaves Afghanistan the country will be taken over by the Taliban once again.  They are patiently waiting on the sidelines, pleading to God to bring Afghanistan back into the 14th century and they will eventually get their wish. 

God help the women of Afghanistan.  Amen.

During the afternoon of March 19, 2015, a call came in to the Shiprock, New Mexico police that Justin Fowler, age 24, was beating his wife and mother. The operator heard shots being fired in the background. 

The officer who responded was shot at by Justin Fowler who then fled in his vehicle. That night Justin Fowler shot at another officer and then drove toward Arizona. More than 30 Navajo police officers were involved in the apprehension of Fowler. 

Justin Fowler crashed his car in Arizona and exchanged more gunfire with police officers.  Three officers were shot.  Two were wounded and one, Officer Alex Yazzie, was fatally wounded.

André Creel and Jean-Michel Gélinas - Good Samaritans in Montreal, Canada

Jean-Michel Gélinas (L); André Creel (R)
Just before midnight on March 12, 2015, a woman inadvertently fell onto the subway tracks at the Jarry Metro station in Montreal, Quebec.

She was unconscious and was bleeding.

Three men were standing on the subway station platform and heard people calling for help.

The men could hear a train coming in the distance. They jumped down onto the tracks at great risk to their lives. Some of these rails are electrified with 750 volts which can easily kill you.

Two of the men are André Creel, age 27, and Jean-Michel Gélinas, age 29. The third man did not give his name to reporters.

The men all said that they reacted in the heat of the moment. They saw someone in
The Good Samaritan comes to the aid
of strangers, selflessly. 
need and responded automatically without thinking.  It was just the human thing to do.

They were able to pull the woman up to the platform and called transit staff who quickly arrived and stabilized the woman who had suffered a head injury.

Transit authorities are happy that the woman is okay but state that if a situation like this arises, you should use a Metro emergency phone to communicate directly with the underground control centre. The control centre can cut the current and stop oncoming trains. An emergency phone is found on every subway platform. There is also a lever at the phone station that you can pull to cut the power to the tracks.

God bless André Creel, Jean-Michel Gélinas and the unnamed man who came to the aid of this woman. They are Good Samaritans.

God knows that we need more men like them on this Earth.
