An Iraq war veteran by the name of Matthew DeRemer’s final facebook post has gone viral after he was killed shortly after writing it.
DeRemer was a former Marine who just found a new job as a surgical technician, according to NBC News, and was looking forward to the promise that 2016 held for him, writing in his now famous post that ‘I’ve lost, I’ve gained, family is closer and tougher than ever before, loved ones lost, and new friends found.’
Sadly, just a few hours after Matthew wrote his message on facebook, he was struck and killed by an alleged drunk driver in Largo, Florida. Matthew began his post by writing ‘Last day of 2015!!!! For me I’ll be meditating through all I do, on this entire year.’ He goes on to say, ‘There has been many times where I’ve been found on my knees in prayer for hours (relentless) and other times leading a group of people in prayer, my faith (that I love to share) is an everyday awakening(to me) that people, lives, and circumstances can change for the better OVER TIME.’
