Couragous is as Couragous does

People describe Jon Meis is a quiet gentle, outdoorsy young man of deep Christian faith. He’s a dedicated student on the cusp of a promising life beyond college.

He is also the “22 year old student who tackled a gunman earlier this week at Seattle Pacific University. His quick and incredibly brave choice to try and subdue the gunman likely saved many lives!” writes one blogger.

Amazing that while we find this young man courageous in the face of danger, we neglect to remember servicemen and women his age are facing the same terror daily as they fight in Afghanistan. While Meis is courageous, he’s no more so than a soldier, sailor, Marine or airman.

Pray they all remain safe.
