I have come across an amazing story about an 8 year old who sacrificed his life trying to save his paraplegic Grandpa and an Uncle from a fire. His story will be my one of three front page articles on These Christian Times. A Hero can come in all shapes and sizes. We look at them as Police man, Fireman, Military Veterans, or Paramedics, but for one family their Hero was one of their own and his name was Tyler J. Doohan. He woke up 6 of his family members and in a self-less act  went back to save his loved ones. People will say where God was in this senseless tragedy? I may not know the  answer to that question, but  I can tell you he was with Tyler.  He thought like God did by giving his life for the ones that he loved. In that moment he had the mind of God risking everything with no fear. Giving his life in the ultimate way God did, by sacrificing himself. Today God wiped the tear from his eyes and told him “Well done faithful servant”.
