Why did three Americans on a train bound for Paris decide to jump up and stop an armed terrorist last month?
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
Their military training was not their only motivation. According to various media reports, the three young men are Christians.
College student Anthony Sadler, Airman Spencer Stone, and National Guardsman Alek Skarlatos were awarded the Legion of Honor in Paris, France’s top honor. The three Americans and one British man received the accolade for taking down a man who was heavily armed on a passenger train in Belgium.
“They’re all Christians; they’re all very religious,” Peter Skarlatos, Alek’s brother, told The Sacramento Bee.
Sadler’s father, Anthony Sadler Sr., is a Baptist pastor in Sacramento, California. According to The Gospel Herald, the three men and childhood friends went to California’s Freedom Christian School together.
The Associated Press reported that during the ordeal on the Paris-bound train, Stone was stabbed several times in the back and suffered other injuries. He even had a pistol put to his head. The attacker pulled the trigger two times.
“But it clicked twice and didn’t go off,” Stone’s mother, Joyce Eskel, said.
“We believe God’s providential will worked its way out,” Sadler Sr. said. “I’m just thankful they were there and got things done.”
Sadler said his son loves his friends.
“There’s no way he would stand on the sidelines and watch them get attacked,” he said. “I’m thanking God they were not seriously injured.”
