Dong Yun Yoon lost his whole family in a F-18 crash where the pilot survived. There are many out there who wouldn’t even be able to get over their grief long enough to address the public. Let alone forgive the pilot who was at the helm of the fighter jet that obliterated your wife, mother-in-law, & two children. He is a fine example of a good,forgiving Christian. Dong Yun Yoon’s gracious statement had me getting teary-eyed. Here’s more from CBS News:
“His wife, two children and mother-in-law were dead – killed by a fighter jet that lost power and by chance crashed through their home and burst into flames.
One day after losing his family, Yoon held a news conference asking guidance from people who have suffered “more terrible things.”
“Please tell me how to do it,” Yoon told reporters Tuesday, trying to contain his emotions with his pastor, brother and sister at his side. “I don’t know what to do.”
Yoon, sobbing into a tissue at the foot of his destroyed home, also asked the public to pray for the jet’s Marine pilot, who ejected safely from the F/A-18D Hornet after his training mission went awry Monday.
“I don’t have any hard feelings,” Yoon told reporters, speaking haltingly. “I know he did everything he could.”(End of Excerpt) Read the rest here: (http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2008/12/09/national/main4656983.shtml
