A Very Small Comfort
These words from Eric von Brunn, as recorded on Foxnews, may be scant solace to the family of Stephen Johns, the security guard who lost his life in the shooting at the Holocaust Museum, but I hope that when they are read they do offer some small comfort to them.
“I cannot express enough how deeply sorry I am it was Mr. Johns, and not my father who lost (his) life,” Erik von Brunn, 32, said in a statement to ABC News. “It was unjustified and unfair that he died...”
“For the extremists who believe my father is a hero: it is imperative that you understand what he did was an act of cowardice,” he said.
And let us all offer thanks that the son did not follow in the father’s evil beliefs.
