Time stood still for a young soldier in Ottawa yesterday morning.
One minute he was standing guard for his country and the next minute he was gone; shot to death for no reason other than that he stood for freedom and peace.
Time also stood still for the person responsible for such savagery.
One minute he was dealing death and the next minute he, too, was dead—thwarted in his attempt to kill again.
It took only minutes for the clock of life to stop for these two men.
Heaven’s gates surely opened wide for the young soldier—and the other?
Time will tell.
