15 year-old shot five times saving his friends

Don’t let others look down on you because you are young. Instead set an example… 1 Timothy 4:12

There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. – John 15:13

I’m so inspired by the example of Anthony Borges, a heroic 15-year old from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. Even while he was being shot he was able to close and lock the door to his classroom, saving himself and 20 of his fellow students. I’m so grateful, and not surprised at all, that there are those in the next generation with this kind of character, conviction and capacity. Pray that Generation Alpha will see many leaders like Anthony step up, as they must lead the way through a difficult culture with this depth of courage and passion in the decades ahead.
