I understand this is not an especially head turning story – it did however, get my attention and the words of the young man’s mother absolutely rang true for me – to the point that it gave me chills.
I listened to a local radio guy* the other day trash all those who say ‘God saved me’ in any manner or form – he even call some derogatory names… suggesting ‘why would God save you – you ‘blank’ [pos]! IF He was going to save anyone – why you? Why not so in so? Why not my brother …?**

**that remark allowed me to understand his anger and position. I am sorry for his loss.
The radio guy? He’s just wrong. God does act in our lives. Why and for who? I admit that is not always clear to us… and I cannot say I know the answer [I know some of it and am happy to share my thoughts on request]. I know God does act in our lives though – He has in my own. I know.
It does NOT mean I am more worthy or deserving of such mercy or grace than another;
I know that too.
I’m Just Sayin’ … .
