Nathan Cirillo - A Canadian Soldier killed by a Jihadist in Ontario

Nathan Cirillo
Corporal Nathan Cirillo, age 24, of Hamilton, Ontario, died in the line of duty on October 22, 2014, at a hospital in Ottawa, Canada.

Nathan was an Army Reservist with the Argyll and Sutherland Highlanders.

At about 10:00 a.m., Corporal Cirillo was standing on honorary guard at the National War Memorial, near the Parliament Buildings, when he was shot at point blank range by a stranger whose face was half covered. Nathan was given immediate first aid and rushed to the hospital where tragically he succumbed to his injuries.

Nathan was shot by Michael Zehaf-Bibeau, age 32, a Canadian convert to Islam. Zehaf-Bibeau then made his way to the Parliament Buildings with his rifle, entered the building and was shot to death by guards and police there. Authorities believe that the actions of Michael Zehaf-Bibeau were some

Zehaf-Bibeau was the son of a Libyan father and a French-Canadian mother. He was on the Canadian terror watchlist. The authorities had seized his passport to prevent him from leaving the country to join ISIS or other Islamic terror groups. He had prior convictions for drug possession and robbery.

Nathan Cirillo was a single father of a five year old boy who is in kindergarten. He had served as a military cadet when he was a kid. When not serving with the Army Reserves, Nathan worked as a personal fitness trainer and as a bouncer at a bar in Hamilton. He wanted to make the military his full time and permanent career.

All of Canada is in mourning over the death of this young soldier. Oceans of tears will be shed for him.

Military officials stated that the Highlanders are in mourning over the death of their

Gordon Schaffer - a victim of robbery in Columbia, Tennessee

Gordon Schaffer, age 22, of Spring Hill, Tennessee, died on October 20, 2014, in Columbia, Tennessee. 

Gordon Schaffer
Gordon was a manager at a Papa John's Restaurant.  He was known as Gordo to his family and friends.

Just before 10:00 p.m., two black males entered the restaurant and demanded cash.  No one else was in the restaurant at the time.  They held a handgun to Gordon's back. 

Gordon opened the register and emptied it, dumping all of the cash into a plastic bag as demanded. He didn't resist, which is what everyone is told to do when confronted with armed robbers. 

The two robbers walked to the door and one of them turned around and shot Gordon multiple times for no reason. They already had the cash they wanted. 

Gordon was airlifted to a hospital in Nashville.  Tragically, he died on the way there.

The getaway vehicle could be a black mid 2000's four door car or a red SUV.  If you

Gordon's family are devastated by his tragic and senseless death.  He will be forever mourned. 

Friends stated that he was working multiple jobs to save money. He didn't know what he wanted to do as a permanent job.  He was thinking about moving to Colorado to work on a ranch or going on a road trip from coast to coast. He was undecided but he was a hard worker. 

Friends also describe him as a good kid who was just starting out in life. He will be forever missed. 

Gordon is survived by many loving friends and family members. 

Oceans of tears will be shed for this young man. 

Pray for justice for Gordon. 

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

Juan Fernandez - man killed by Pit Bulls in Modesto, California

Juan Fernandez
Juan Fernandez, age 54, died on October 15, 2014, at a hospital in Modesto, California.

Around 6:00 p.m., Juan was attacked by four Pitbull dogs in the backyard of his mother's house.

The Pitbulls belong to his neighbor. It is reported that the dogs had dug under the chain link fence separating the two houses.

Juan was transported to a local hospital where he succumbed to his injuries.

It is also reported that a dog or dogs got into the Fernandez family's house and attacked Maria Fernandez, age 77, who was hospitalized in critical condition.

Friends stated that Juan had a good heart and looked after his elderly mother.

When the police arrived at the scene they found Juan being mauled by three pitbulls. The fourth dog was running around in the area. The Police shot and killed two of the dogs outright and after Juan was removed by ambulance, they found the other two and shot them.

Local authorities are not clear as to what charges, if any, the dog owners will face.
A Pitbull dog
Unless negligence on the part of the dog owners is demonstrated, then there is no potential criminal liability if you live in Modesto.

It has been reported that Juan Fernandez had been arguing with the neighbors for over a month about the increased aggressiveness of these dogs.

Where is the City Council of Modesto and how intelligent are they? Why do they allow Pitbull dogs within their jurisdiction? News flash, Modesto - This is the 21st century! This isn't California in the 1850's. 

And please - no hate mail about how your pitbull is your very best friend, and saved your life and licks your baby's face.

Pit bulls are vicious and unpredictable dogs. They were bred 200 years ago for bull baiting, bear baiting and dog fighting. They were never intended to be family pets. They should never be around infants or young children under any circumstances.

They have repeatedly proven that they can kill people both young and old including people passing by. They have killed grown women walking in the hallways of their apartment buildings; they have killed 40 year old men jogging by on a country road; they have killed toddlers playing on the floor.

Many towns and cities, counties and states do not allow pit bulls and related breeds within their jurisdictions.  Pitbulls are banned outright in a number of European countries, period.

Pit Bulls and all related dog breeds should be bred out of existence sooner rather than later.

Pray for Juan Fernandez. No one deserves to be bitten to death by dogs. God help us. Amen.

Rafael Ramirez - child victim of suspected drunk driving in Anaheim, California

Rafael Ramirez
Rafael Ramirez, age 10, died on October 18, 2014, at a hospital in Anaheim, California.

Just before midnight Rafael's family, consisting of two adults and three children, were in their Toyota Camry on a city street, stopped at an intersection.  The kids were all in the back seat.  They had spent part of the day at a festival and then went to a restaurant for a late-night dinner.

A pickup truck slammed into them from behind and pushed their car into a third vehicle. 

All five members of Rafael's family were transported to a local hospital where tragically Rafael died of his injuries. 

Gary S. Hunt, age 41, was arrested at the scene on suspicion of driving under the
Gary Hunt
influence of drugs or alcohol. 

Rafael, Archangel, pray
for Rafael Ramirez
The female driver of the third vehicle suffered minor to moderate injuries.

Friends of the family describe Rafael as a sweet boy who was always smiling.

Rafael's family are devastated by his tragic death. He will be forever mourned.

Oceans of tears will be shed for this boy.

Advice To All Drivers: If you find that you are drunk or doped up on street drugs or prescription drugs or if you are falling asleep on your feet, do NOT drive. Call a family member or a friend for a ride; or take a taxi; or stay where you are until you sober up; or crawl home on your hands and knees. It will be better for you and for the world if you do.

Regret can last a lifetime.

Rafael is survived by many loving relatives including his mother, his stepfather and two sisters.

Pray for all who die as children. They barely had a chance to live. 

Pray for justice for Rafael.

God save us from the drunk and the doped up drivers. They are killing us, Father.

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

The fire had started in the garage and had quickly spread to the house.

They heard a woman crying out for help stating that her father was trapped inside. The woman, Roberta Francis, had managed to get her baby grandson to safety. 

They could hear a man yelling for help but couldn't see him because of the heavy smoke. 

Robert Wells, age 73, was last seen in his kitchen. 

Michael Alcala made his way around the flames and over a side fence to the backyard where Robert Wells was found gasping for air. Michael and an unnamed man started carrying Robert to safety.  Just then there was a huge explosion in the garage. 
The Good Samaritan reaches
out to others, selflessly.

A third man, in a Dodger's baseball cap, and also unidentified at this time, stepped in, threw Robert Wells over his shoulder and carried him to the safety of the street. 

That man disappeared after the rescue. 

Robert Wells would like the unnamed man who last carried him to come forward so that he can thank him personally. 

God bless Michael Alcala, the man in the Dodger's cap and the other unnamed man who came to the aid of a stranger. 

They are the Good Samaritans.  They are the true heroes of the modern world.

John Hruby and his wife and daughter - murdered in Oklahoma

John Hruby, age 50, his wife, Joy, age 48, and their daughter Katherine, age 17, all died on October 9, 2014, at their home in Duncan, Oklahoma. 

Hruby Family - Alan; Katherine; John, Joy
Conflicting news reports out of Oklahoma state the mother's name as Katherine and as Joy.  The mother's nickname was "Tinker".

All three were shot and killed by Alan Hruby, age 19, the son of John and Joy and the brother of Katherine. 

Alan Hruby has admitted to the killings and is charged with murder.  He shot his mother twice; then shot his sister when she came into the house after washing her car.  He waited for his father to come home an hour later and shot him twice when he entered the house. 

The motive for these murders is that Alan thought he would inherit a huge sum of money.  He owed a $3,000. debt to a loan shark that was of immediate concern to him. 

His family had cut him off financially in recent months after he repeatedly stole money from them and other family members. He was also under investigation by the local police regarding accusations that he forged $17,500. in checks and for putting charges on stolen credit cards.  It is reported that he had physically assaulted his mother during a dispute. 

He somehow managed to take trips to Rome, Paris, London and New York City but not in the company of his family.  He also liked expensive watches, electronics, cars and clothes and partying at expensive bars while on holiday. 

Authorities believe that Alan planned the murders well in advance.
Jesus, pray for John, Joy
and Katherine and for those
who have lost them.


Friends who spent time with Alan Hruby on the weekend after the murders stated that he acted normally and was happy and laughing and having a good time at a football game in Dallas. He was staying at a five star hotel that weekend. 

He has shown no remorse over his heinous actions. However, he did weep when he was denied bail. 

Alan was a freshman at the University of Oklahoma. 

This kid is only 19 years old and already has a rap sheet like Judas.  He is facing either the death penalty or life in prison. When you are a teenager, life in prison can last a long, long time.  

For those who would kill for money, this question arises:  What does it profit a man if he gains the whole world and loses his own soul? 

John Hruby, the father, was a well known local newspaper publisher. Joy Hruby, the mother, is described as a great neighbor. Katherine, the sister, was a junior in high school. She always had a smile on her face and is described as a good person and a good friend.  John, Joy and Katherine are all described as helpful and friendly by those who knew them.

John, Joy and Katherine are survived by many loving friends and relatives. They will be forever mourned. 

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

Pray that John, Joy and Katherine are in heaven. Pray that they are at peace and are with God. Amen.

Rui Gouveia - A Good Samaritan in Massachusetts

Rui Gouveia
In October of 2014, Rui Gouveia, age 41, of Fairhaven, Massachusetts, was driving on his way to work on the overnight shift at the Massachusetts Treatment Center in Bridgewater.

He saw a car speed by him in the wrong lane. A few seconds later the car veered off of the road and smashed into a tree. The car turned upside down and started on fire.

Rui jumped out of his car and ran to the scene of the accident. He was worried that the fuel tank would explode. He managed to pull three occupants of the vehicle to safety - the 20 year old driver and two passengers, ages 18 and 19.

Seconds later the fire escalated and the entire vehicle was engulfed in flames.

All three of the vehicle's occupants escaped injury due to the efforts of Rui Gouveia. He saved three lives.
 
The Good Samaritan comes
to the aid of strangers,
selflessly.

Rui works as a corrections officer and is a married father of one.

He stated that he tried to help because he didn't want the parents of these kids to have a cop come to their door and tell them that their children were dead.

The 20-year-old driver of the crashed vehicle is facing impaired driving charges.

God bless Rui Gouveia and all who come to the aid of strangers. They are the true heroes of the modern era. Amen.

Lisa Hermes - a victim of domestic murder in Texas

Lisa Hermes; Jerry Hermes Jr. 
Lisa Hermes, age 32, died on October 12, 2014, at her home in New Braunfels, Texas. 

Sometime around 8:30 p.m., Lisa was shot multiple times as she sat in the driver's seat of her vehicle parked in the driveway of her home.  She was returning from the grocery store. Her three children, all under 10 years old, were in the back seat. They were not physically harmed. 

Lisa was killed by her husband, Jerry Hermes Jr., age 35, in what is another tragic example of domestic abuse and murder. He fled the scene. 

Jerry was hunted down by the Police and was found in a barn in Marion, Texas.  He started shooting and was in turn shot and killed by a U.S. Deputy Marshall. 

Lisa's family members stated that there had been a history of domestic violence in this 10 year marriage.

Lisa had filed for divorce in August of 2014.  She had filed a restraining order against her husband in September of 2014.  Jerry Hermes had brandished a gun during a dispute. Later, he kept phoning and texting his wife with threatening comments. 

Lisa's family stated that she lived for her kids. She was trying to find a way out of this
Saint Bernadette of Lourdes, who
said "I am ground like a grain of
wheat", pray for Lisa and for all
who are ground down by domestic
abuse. 
violent marriage and move on.


This entire incident is tragic in so many ways. A young woman and a young man lost their lives. A young man committed murder. Three children saw their mother being murdered and have lost both parents. 

Advice to anyone in a relationship:  The first time that your spouse or partner (whether male or female) threatens you with a beating or death; holds a knife to your throat or a gun to your head, or throws an ashtray or a lamp at your face or punches you in the gut, or kicks you or gives you a black eye, start planning to leave, sooner rather than later. The marriage is over. Everyone wants to be loved, but physical abuse and fear is not love. 

Lisa's family are devastated over her tragic and senseless death. They will seek custody of her children. She will be forever mourned.

Lisa is survived by many loving friends and family members including her parents and her children.

God save us from the Lost Ones who once said they loved us and then kill us.

Pray for these three children who have suffered through an unspeakable tragedy.

Pray that Lisa is in heaven. Pray that she is at peace and is with God. Amen.
