Cornwall ON – Life isn’t fair. Not sure why anyone expects it to be?? For Jeanne Assam though fairness has reached a new level of low.
Jeanne Assam was a volunteer security guard forthe New Life Church in Colorado when a nut bar named Matthew Murray went on a shooting rampage. Out gunned she stood her ground and wounded Murray who decided to end his own life rather than be captured in December of 2007.
She was fetted and honored for her act of bravery, but according to media reports was told by the Church after coming out and deciding to live her life openly that she was not welcome; a charge denied by the church.
It’s not a fair world, but more honesty in it never hurts. The world needs more people who will stand up for others and be honest with those around them.
Sometimes though, there’s a price to pay. Jeanne Assam has paid that price. You can post your comments below.
