|Pray for Danny|
Private Chen’s parents have stated that they don’t believe their son took his own life. They also stated that the Army informed them he had been racially taunted by fellow soldiers and had once been beaten by a group of six superior officers.
God help us...Seemingly, you don't need the Taliban or insurgents or terrorists to kill you or to lead you to death...you can rely on your own comrades to do it instead.
Who would taunt or beat a 19 year old kid, however inept he was?
Jesus, Mary and Joseph pray to the Father for us all.
Pray for the teenagers who die in War. They are only kids.
Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Danny Chen is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen.
