Another glimmer of light in the dark face of evil.

More from CBS News:

At a church in Aurora Sunday, pastor Michael Walker told a story of heroism, how a 13-year-old struggled to save the life of 6-year-old Veronica Moser-Sullivan, the youngest person to die.

Pastor Michael Walker: “If you could imagine a 13-year-old giving CPR to a 6-year-old who is dying. It’s a tragedy.”

That 13-year-old is Kaylan.

Kaylan’s mother requested that her last name be kept private and media outlets are, thankfully, respecting that request.

Watch the video at the link and have a box of tissues handy.

Bless you, Kaylan, and thank you for reminding us all of the good in people, even in the darkest of times. We are so sorry for your loss and our prayers continue to be with all who lost their lives, and those who love them.
