“….Above the Law, There is Humanity.”

This man, Alberto Casillas, instantly became a national celebrity in Spain when he protected a group of youths who were protesting against the government’s austerity measures.  The police were beating and attacking protestors who then ran into Casillas’s cafe for protection.  When the police demanded he let them enter, he stood against them, with absolutely no weapons or way to defend himself and said, ”On my Life, you will not enter! It will be a massacre.”  When the police stood down, the protestors started hugging and thanking him.  The best part of this story? Casillas actually supported the government the protesters were fighting against.  But that didn’t matter to him.  As he said, ”There were excessive police forces. I am for compliance with the law, but above the law, there is humanity. I did what I had to do, that’s all.”

    “Upon my life…” Sometimes a person knows that there is more to lose than one’s life by failing to do what needs to be done. This post describes such a man. May he and his actions be a shining example to the world far long after he passes from it.
    With Love,
