BLOOMINGTON, Minn. – The 5-year-old boy who was thrown off a third-floor balcony at the Mall of America is showing “real signs of recovery,” according to a post on behalf of the family.

According to KARE, Mac Hammond, the pastor at the family’s church, said the boy, who he identified as Landen, had gone through an MRI that lasted five hours and referred to the results as “truly a miracle.”

“Doctors said they found no brain damage — not even any swelling,” Hammond said at the service. “No spinal damage, no nerve damage … doctors are saying it is truly a miracle.”

The pastor said that doctors described the injuries as if he “fell off a bicycle instead of off the third floor of the mall.”

@26 horses I have a question. Would it be considered Good News if a person saved thier own life using thier legally owned firearm and the criminal does not live on as a result?

The saving of a life is always good news, whereas the loss of one can't be anything but a regret for poor choices made and some failure of family or friends to know and impact how a miscreant's path wanders away from positivity.

If you talk to any combat vet, and few will choose to expound on the horrors they've seen, you'll find a wistful pool of sadness that things ever had to get so far along.

In my mind's eye it's roughly the same when you punch out (good or bad) if matters are unfinished - perplexing and for many...abrupt and traumatic:



Great question btw. :)

https://www.studyfinds.org/encounters-with-god-under-influence-lasting-mental-benefits/

People who claim they’ve seen God may not be so crazy after all. A study by researchers at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine found that those who have had divine encounter experiences — the sensation of seeing a God-like figure or a profound, enhanced reality or truth — reap lasting mental benefits.

Many have reported experiencing these deeply religious visions spontaneously or while under the influence of psychedelic drugs like psilocybin “magic” mushrooms or the Amazonian drink ayahuasca. Some of these experiences were described as encounters with God or an “ultimate reality,” bringing sudden, striking clarity to their lives and existence in general. And interestingly, even if the encounter occurred on a psychedelic trip, researchers say the benefits are still the same.

“Experiences that people describe as encounters with God or a representative of God have been reported for thousands of years, and they likely form the basis of many of the world’s religions,” says lead researcher Roland Griffiths, Ph.D., a professor of psychiatry and behavioral sciences at the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, in a release. “And although modern Western medicine doesn’t typically consider ‘spiritual’ or ‘religious’ experiences as one of the tools in the arsenal against sickness, our findings suggest that these encounters often lead to improvements in mental health.”

Point - sadly like the American Burqa, they diminish facial recognition accuracy.

Yay for the Castle Doctrine!  I'm not saying killing your offender is good by any means, but it's far better than a likely alternative.
