    No amount of words can begin to explain how saddened and shook i am by this. A great man, protecting his country was taken from us by a coward. If u ask me we should treat this as a terrorist attack on american citizens by extremist groups here in america since this is most likely the work of some local gang or drug cartel. God bless his soul, Famaly, and America!

    Praying for his family, and for us. We all are suffering his loss, because for the person he was, he belonged to all of us. Be proud of your son….I wish may children will be outstanding people like he is.
