Most of the time, when we think of preteens using Snapchat, we think of all the scary things that can happen online.

Bullying, predatory behavior, pornography.

It’s a scary cyber world out there.

Yahoo News reports:

Gabe Rongier had been chatting with his friend, who he met on the social media app through a mutual friend, when he noticed a drastic change in the girl’s emotions. According to CBS Pittsburgh, the girl shared a disturbing post that read she “wouldn’t be here tomorrow.”

Gabe, not knowing how to alert the authorities in Texas about the girl possibly being a danger to herself, called the suicide hotline.

“I called the suicidal prevention services and it linked me to Officer Chandler [in Texas,]” Gabe told the outlet. “He went to her house, checked up on her. The next day he called me and said, ‘She’s fine. It’s real.’”

Gabe’s parents, Fred and Lori, were informed by investigators that they used geotracking to locate the girl and that they arrived in time to intervene with any plans she may have had.

“Of course, I’m very proud of him, but I really hope that other young people his age might see the story and also be inspired to also take action to help somebody in need just like Gabe did,” Lori said. Fred added, “When he went to bed, I always kiss him and, I’ve been telling him since that day, ‘You’re my little hero.’”

Officer Chandler also sent Gabe, who wants to be a SWAT officer someday, a package in the mail to thank him for his service. Included with a letter was a law enforcement coin, called a “Challenge Coin,” and a badge.

Congratulations to my little hero Gabe who called the Grand Saline Texas Police because someone he met on Snapchat was having a very rough time and he saved her life!

It’s so wonderful to know that the generation now growing up with these oftentimes scary worlds of social media haven’t lost their sense of caring and responsibility for the lives of others.

We certainly hope there are many more young people like Gabe out there willing to reach out and intervene when their friends are in trouble, even from thousands of miles away!

Huge Fire Tears Through Church…You Won’t Believe Went Unscathed

Firefighters were absolutely shocked when they finally got inside the razed church.

Truly and utterly, there are some time in which the truth is far stranger than any conjured fiction. Here in America, we seem to love these stories and the mysteries behind them.  We’re obsessed with unsolved true crime, the paranormal, and all things hypothetical…including bizarre notions about the ancient Egyptians galavanting around with extraterrestrials. Is this simply escapism run amok?  Perhaps, but we have been drawn to the impossible and improbable throughout the entirety of human history. That is why the story of a church fire in West Virginia is so compelling. Firefighters in West Virginia surveying the damage from an inferno that had gutted a church over the weekend were astounded when they discovered that a bevy of Bibles and crosses had somehow survived the conflagration unscathed. The remarkable find was reportedly made early Sunday morning after the Coal City Fire Department helped to battle a blaze that had engulfed the Freedom Ministries Church in the community of Greenview. Upon entering the building, the team of rescue workers was stunned to see that every Bible inside the church had apparently made it through the harrowing ordeal undamaged. Posting pictures of the amazing sight to Facebook, the department noted that the fire had, at one point, been so hot that they were actually forced to pull personnel from the building for their safety. The temperatures were so extreme, they explained, that everything inside should have been reduced to ashes. Firefighters also remarked that none of the crosses inside the church itself were damaged by fire either, adding to the mystery.

Lucky samaritan, or a sign from above?  In either case, this is a must watch video.

Every now and again, when perhaps the world at large seems to be at its very darkest, our faith will provide us a reminder of its power. Such is the case in recent weeks, as the American political scene continues to devolve into a humiliating mess with major, yet-untold international consequences.  For many Americans, this is a perfect time to receive some sort of divine message, to provide light to our shadows.  They see a very real possibility of either Civil War, or, in the not-so-distant future, a possible third World War. It is for these reasons that bizarre and unexplainable incidents are imbued with extra meaning these days.  One such moment was caught on tape this week, and you have to see it to believe it. A shopkeeper in Turkey was left mystified after a tap on his shoulder from a mysterious stranger seemingly saved him from being seriously injured by a passing truck. According to a local media report, the eerie encounter took place in the city of Adana as Serdar Binici’yi was preparing to close his store for the night. However, his normal routine of picking up sale items from outside the shop was decidedly different this time around thanks to a truly strange series of events. In a video captured by a nearby security camera, an unidentified man can be seen walking down the road toward Binici’yi as he stands in front of his store. When the stranger reaches the shopkeeper, he nonchalantly reaches over, taps him on the shoulder, and keeps walking. Wondering who just touched him, Binici’yi turns around, but only sees a white van rumbling down the street. Suddenly, from the back of the vehicle, a rather sizeable metal grate swings around and narrowly misses the shaken shopkeeper, who ducks at the last…
