The Lord's Grace On Display

I really don't know what to say since this is so profound. Yesterday an F-18 jet crashed into a San Diego neighborhood after an engine failure and tragically took the family of Korean immigrant Dong Yun Yoon away from him. The pilot was able to eject safely and knowing the character of our miltary is probably devestated over it as well. What is so incredibly profound is Dong Yun Yoon's reaction, via Michelle Malkin and CNN.

A Korean immigrant who lost his wife, two children and mother-in-law when a Marine Corps jet slammed into the family’s house said Tuesday he did not blame the pilot, who ejected and survived.

“Please pray for him not to suffer from this accident,” a distraught Dong Yun Yoon told reporters gathered near the site of Monday’s crash of an F/A-18D jet in San Diego’s University City community.

“He is one of our treasures for the country,” Yoon said in accented English punctuated by long pauses while he tried to maintain his composure.

“I don’t blame him. I don’t have any hard feelings. I know he did everything he could,” said Yoon, flanked by members of San Diego’s Korean community, relatives and members from the family’s church.

In today's sue happy 'what's in it for me society' this man's forgiveness and patriotism is simply profound and should serve as a lesson for us all. My prayers go out to him and the pilot.

Michelle has posted his Church's address if you wish to send a card.
