The Heroes Among Us…….

“Greater love has no one than this: to lay down one’s life for one’s friends.” John 15:13

….and today, TWO people gave life rescuing others!!!!!!!!!

1). The manager of the Lindt cafe who was fatally shot in the Martin Place siege is being praised as a hero, responsible for allowing others trapped in the cafe to escape.

Tori Johnson’s family has expressed their sorrow for the family of Katrina Dawson as well

Tori Johnson, 34, was wrestling a gun from hostage-taker Man Haron Monis when he was killed.

It is understood the cafe manager decided to take action when the gunman began to doze off after the siege had been ongoing for 17 hours.

He lunged at the hostage-taker’s weapon, allowing others to flee.

2). The second hostage killed has been identified as barrister Katrina Dawson. The 38-year-old mother-of-three is the sister of well-known Sydney lawyer Sandy Dawson.
