Group of men catch a toddler falling from a 5th-story window

The child, who had woken up from her nap and decided to climb out the window unbeknownst to her parents, fell. The group of eight men below caught her together. Two of them were injured, but the girl escaped with only a minor wound on her face…

      ”And though this world, with devils filled,
      should threaten to undo us,

      his truth to triumph through us.”

      These people saved a life. If you like to believe God had a part in it, fair enough. But these people also deserve credit for what they did. Every day people make choices, some of which help people – yes that might be doing ‘God’s work’, but it’s still not an easy road to walk, so people should be applauded for they good they do.

    As that Sunday school teacher who’s looking forward to being a father one day, I have so much respect for those guys.

    Well done, people who I will never meet and who will likely never hear my words!
