Boy 13 Chastised For Stopping Knife Attack!

Heroic Canadian schoolboy disciplined for disarming knife-wielding classmate because it broke school rules


A schoolboy who bravely tackled a knife-wielding pupil who was threatening a classmate was punished because such heroic actions are strictly banned.

Briar MacLean, 13, stepped in after he spotted an argument was quickly beginning to escalate between two boys at Sir John A. Macdonald school in Alberta, Canada.

Suddenly one of the boys pulled out a knife and began to threaten the other turning an scuffle into a potentially deadly situation.

Are you Depressed? Feeling Hopeless? In Crisis? Afraid? Lonely?

The world can be a lonely place. Unemployment rates are high. Economic stability is a thing of the past. Our future retirement plans are in jeopardy. Birthrates out-of-wedlock are at the highest they have ever been. Divorce, domestic violence and abuse are all a common reality. Crime is increasing daily. Mass murders are frequent and heinous. Schools are becoming more violent and evil. Government seems to be taking away more of our rights and privacy. Have you been a victim of a natural disaster?

Do you suffer from depression, anxiety or stress? Have you been the victim of abuse or violence? Have you been the perpetrator of a crime? Perhaps you are feeling guilty of something you have done in the past? Adultery, abortion, drug abuse, hatred, theft or even murder? Is your conscience haunting you day and night? Are you in a difficult and impossible situation? Does life seem hopeless?

There is an answer to your problems. The answer is Jesus! Jesus can wipe away your sins and give you new life. He will forgive you of your sins. Yes, even murder! Jesus will forgive you of all your sins. He can and will give you peace and comfort in trying times.

1 John 1:9

“If we confess our sins, he is faithful and just and will forgive us our sins and purify us from all unrighteousness.”

Matthew 12:31-32

And so I tell you, every kind of sin and slander can be forgiven, but blasphemy against the Spirit will not be forgiven. Anyone who speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but anyone who speaks against the Holy Spirit will not be forgiven, either in this age or in the age to come.”

The only sin that is not forgivable is blasphemy against the Holy Spirit of God. All other sins are forgivable. ALL.

You may be thinking that you are just not good enough for God to forgive you. Well, the bible tells us that not one man is without sin or blame, except for Jesus Christ.

Romans 3:23

for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God”

You see, if we are to be good enough for God by our works, then not one of us who ever lived would be “good enough” to be saved. Not one! We are not saved by our good works, but by the grace of God. This is God’s loving gift to us. That is how much he loves us. All we need to do is believe in him and accept his gift to us!

Ephesians 2:8-9

For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith-and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God- not by works, so that no one can boast.”

God loves us so much that he sacrificed himself for us. Before we even knew him.

John 3:16

For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life.”

He also wants to give you peace and comfort. Do not fear or be afraid, accept Jesus as your personal Lord and Savior.

John 14:27

“I am leaving you with a gift-peace of mind and heart. And the peace I give is a gift the world cannot give. So don’t be troubled or afraid.”

God loves you. God is love. God is light. God is truth.

If you are having troubles in life, believe me, you are not alone. Let God handle your problems for you, he wants you to give them to him. In return he will give you peace, comfort and eternal life. Eternal life in heaven and on a new earth, to live forever with him, where you shall never cry again or your heart ache, never shall you go hungry or thirst. He can relieve you of depression, fear, anxiety, lonliness, and in dealing with any crisis.

Romans 15:13

May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace as you trust in him, so that you may overflow with hope by the power of the Holy Spirit.

Philippians 4:6-7

Don’t worry about anything; instead, pray about everything. Tell God what you need, and thank him for all he has done. Then you will experience God’s peace, which exceeds anything we can understand. His peace will guard your hearts and minds as you live in Christ Jesus.

1 Peter 5:7

Cast all your anxiety on him because he cares for you.

Isaiah 41:10

So do not fear, for I am with you;

do not be dismayed, for I am your God.

I will strengthen you and help you;

I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.

Psalm 41:3

The Lord nurses them when they are sick

and restores them to health.

Luke 10:19

I have given you authority to trample on snakes and scorpions and to overcome all the power of the enemy; nothing will harm you.

Philippians 4:13

I can do all this through him who gives me strength.

Heaven is a real place, not some made up fantasy story. Life with God is real. It will be real after you pass on and now in this physical world. God is real now and then. Just as he was in the beginning.

John 10:10

The thief’s purpose is to steal and kill and destroy. My purpose is to give them a rich and satisfying life.

2 Thessalonians 3:16

Now may the Lord of peace himself give you his peace at all times and in every situation. The Lord be with you all.

Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and enjoy your life in peace.


Accept Jesus as your Lord and Savior and enjoy your life in peace.
