Thanks for sharing this, Rick.

What an incredible young lady, personifying the word “hero” in the face of horrific madness.

Learning about the people beyond the statistics is extremely important and what we should truly be focusing on. Rather than the rampant ridiculousness of idiotic amateur psychologists and inappropriate and despicable tunnel vision agenda pushers.

Don't want to rain on the parade, but who witnessed this. How was she 'found shielding' What does that look like. Why would the shooter stop after the 'shielding'. I remember the 'Rambo Jessica Lynch' fairytale concocted by the feminists in the pentagon, when a convoy was ambushed at the start of the 2003 Iraq invasion. All the men joined the fight. All the females...didn't. Is that what this story is?

I’m thinking she was shot and killed in front of the closet her kids were in. As the story describes. Or the CT police are lying to perpetuate a story as I’m sure there are prone to do.

The six staff members killed were all women. Not sure what to make of that other than maybe this school was mainly staffed by women. Or the CT police, along with the school, the families and the community, have undertaken a massive conspiracy about who actually died. Happens all the time.

“The 'Rambo Jessica Lynch' fairytale” was concocted by the media.

Just sad and pathetic.

That could very well be a possibility now couldn't it, tim?

But regardless, it shows how people do yearn for such heroism.

Heroism of this type (regardless of its verified authenticity in this story) has been seen before and will be seen again, unfortunately, in horrific situations such as this.
