As Twitchy reported last night, Navy veteran and beloved father of two, Jon Blunk, died in the Aurora theater shooting while shielding his girlfriend from bullets. He wasn’t alone; two other men, Matt McQuinn and Alex Teves, also died while saving the lives of their girlfriends.
The horror that occurred in the theater during the Aurora shooting tragedy is nearly impossible to wrap one’s mind around. What evil lurks in the hearts of men? But these three brave souls remind us of what good is in the hearts of men as well. Their valor and courage must not ever be forgotten. Remember these courageous lives lost, snuffed out in their prime, so that the women they loved could live.
Might God rest their souls and comfort loved ones left behind.
And might this be an indication of chivalry's comeback.
