A father, Mr Harris was confronted by two armed men as they broke their home. The men came in through the bedroom. when his wife walked in they put a gun to her head and demanded money. when one of them started to the daughter’s bedroom. the father not having a gun took the only action he could and challenged them to a fist fight. the only way he could think of to protect his daughter from harm.

A one of the men made a move the dad jumped up and started to fight with him when the gun went off striking the father, who suffered from lupus, was taken to Jackson Memorial Hospital, where he died.

The mother-in-law Annie Streeter that was telling the story said; “I know he loved his family, and this is just like him, to give his life for his family,”



just something to add that seems fitting;
“Romance fails us and so do friendships, but the relationship of parent and child, less noisy than all the others, remains indelible and indestructible, the strongest relationship on earth”
~Theodore Reik
