Harry Lew - Update

On April 6, 2011, we posted a prayer for Marine Harry Lew, who died in Afghanistan. 

"Lance Cpl. Harry Lew, age 21, of Santa Clara, California., died on April 3, 2011, while supporting combat operations in Helmand province, Afghanistan. 

He was assigned to the 2nd Battalion, 3rd Marine Regiment, 3rd Marine Division, III Marine Expeditionary Force, based out of Marine Corps Base Kaneohe Bay, Hawaii." 

As of that date, the cause of Harry's death was not stated by the military. It has since come to light that Harry Lew committed suicide. Fellow soldiers had found him asleep while on guard duty and had ordered him to do strenuous exercises and had kicked and beaten him. He committed suicide later that day. 
Angels of God, pray for Harry Lew. Pray that he is
taken into Heaven.

Three marines will undergo a court-martial for demeaning and abusing Harry Lew. 

It is deeply disturbing when a young kid is driven to death by his own people. 

Do we not have enough enemies who are ready to kill us? 

Let us pray to God the Father, Jesus, all of the saints and all of the angels that Harry Lew is in heaven. Let us pray that he is at peace and is with God. Amen
