i would have done the same thing for my family. god bless the mother and child.
Houston is a dangerous place. Was this hero father armed? Although I am guilty now and again of leaving the house sans firearm, stories like this remind me that monsters are lurking everywhere. I am very glad the perp didn't get far. At least this father not only saved the life of his family, but maybe the lives of others that this perp would have taken months or years later.
Agreed John, no words for the evil taking place in the world today. Please God help us fix this.
Sounds like the dad was armed, he shot the perp, but it was not an immediately lethal shot(s) and the perp returned fire. Just guessing of course, but if accurate it is one reason I carry a .45 acp with hollow points and keep my shooting skills up..
Where's the picture of the POS who destroyed this family?
And the perp? What color? How old? Criminal past? Important details that are missing because the truth has become predictable.
Agreed john. Much respect to this man. He died doing what men do - protecting their families. Bless this family.
Any Male can Father a child, it take a True Man to be a Great Father. The Father of this Child is one of the best Fathers of all time in my book. God Bless and Comfort this family.
I too would like to contribute.

@east… No need for any political commentary. The lights are beautiful and a somber way to remember those lost. I pray they serve to remind us all to seek light over darkness, truth instead of falsehood, and honor above wealth.
We must never forget that liberty can only belong to those that are willing to defend it. The best way to honor those lost is to embrace our founding principles and restore our sacred honor both here and around the globe.
Eradicating the madness of Islam would be a good start.

If this were a private business instead of the government, the lawsuit wold run into the BILLIONS, execs would face prison time and those affected would see millions in damages… but the government is, so nothing to see, so move along.

Bush is third on my list…

This man easily ranks as the second worst president of my lifetime, (Obummer is #1), but at this time my prayers and sympathies lie with him and his family.
My second presidential election. Carter was worse than any disappointment that I'd had earlier in my life, and I must say that I never cared for any of his politics. But, at the same time, may God bless, and watch over he and his family.
Truth be known, ALL of us have a cancer: it's called sin, and it will kill everyone of us some day. In fact, if the earth survives another 125 years, it will have an entirely different population then than it does now.
I am ready for my death (though I want to postpone it as long as possible), for I have trusted Jesus Christ as my Saviour, and I am trust Him and Him alone for my eternal life.
I hope Carter is as well.
How about you? Are you ready?
if Carter wasn't such a spectacular failure, we might not have gotten Reagan.
he gets some credit for that in my book.
i wish this delusional, but kind-hearted, man all the best.
In my 50+ years on this Earth, I have come to ascertain Cancer & Alzheimer's suck. JC is by far the 2nd worst President ever to have served this country. That's his professional life. For his personal life and that of his family I wish him God Speed.
Carter has had a lot more to be thankful for than he deserves.
I don't know, Harding, Jackson and Wilson spring to mind as worse presidents.
I hope he enjoys the retirement plan that he invested in serving satan
No you're prayers and sympathies are not with him and his family.
If you actually cared about his well being, then you would have made his health the priority. Instead so many people put his politics first and claim he's a horrible person but yet you somehow care about his health.
No you don't care if he lives or dies.
You don't care about all the families he's helped to build houses for.
You don't care about his foundation and all the peace deals they have been involved in.
You don't care that he has been on the forefront in nearly eradicating Guinea Worm.
You don't care that his foundation helped oversee fair elections in numerous countries.
The release of the prisoners in Iran wasn't because Reagan was sworn in. It was a final middle finger to Carter since the negotiations were settled back in December.

“Obama lied, people died”, or ‘Obama, king of Islam”….
Hard to tell from the pictures as my pig-latin is not what it used to be.
 August 6, 2015 at 3:13pm
agreed… but maybe he meant it’s time to put all the socialist/communist politicians that force the cops to enforce un-Constitutional laws in body bags, and for the treasonous ones, I could even agree.
Somehow I doubt that though…

If Obama had a brother…. oh wait, he does and he is nothing like him.

I sense something… a presence I have not felt since……………………………………………
MSNBC is trying to gain relevance by subtly shifting to the right. This example is proof that among them, nobody at MSNBC is a journalist, but rather a sorry collection of the worst script readers and bad actors ever to appear on television.
Does anybody think Blathering Mathews came up with that question on his own? All the out of work day time soap writers must be cooking this stuff up
Well, since someone else posted the idea... I'm thinking someone is trying to stir the s**tpot.

The general is right on at least one point.. This deal makes me hate what this president has done to this country 1000 times more.
We are a defeated republic if this president is allowed to continue his term in office. Impeachment NOW!!!

Heavens gate needed more honor guards… Sad day indeed. Semper fi to my fallen brothers, and the entire military community today…
Time to face the truth that our enemy lay within and has protection from the highest office in the land.

If murderers are allowed to play in the NFL, and cheating steroid kings are allowed to swing a bat, Charlie Hustle should be in Cooperstown…

All this and more… All the while Rome burns.
This is what happens when the Village People take over. Sex change surgery will now be part of the GI bill. Thank God I served under Reagan. Today, I would rather serve in the French Foreign Legion. At least they still have balls.
Yup - And they carry them around in food containers; call 'em "Mountain Oysters".
It's sad isn't it...I mean sad in the sense that our pride in the "The Few, The Proud" has been grandfathered into a past tense noun to be laughed at and berated by the 'can't do, won't try, never have and never will, mommy fix t for me generation'. As long as we can keep finding new ways to lower our standards we will always as a nation remain numba-one G.I..

I still have mixed feelings… Hoping that Disney does not reduce the franchise to a vehicle for promoting a twisted vision of social justice as Lucas did with the anakin films..
Houston has actually had a string of Gun Store robberies and Burglaries, going back for the past year or so. Some have been "Smash and Grab's", some have been break-in's, but whoever it is that's doing it, they've managed to get quite a few guns.
It started along time ago. The leftist progs have been quietly winning for the last 50 years.

So very true… what they cannot see is that after the revolution is over, the Marxists will “listen” to the people and make homosexuality illegal once again by decree and start rounding them all up like Hitler, Stalin and Mao did. This road does not end well…
