from George Takei: remembering a hero

VictoriaSoto SandyHookElementaryIn the aftermath of death in Sandy Hook Elementary…

“When people say there are no heroes left today, remember Victoria.”
George Takei

‘This is Victoria Soto. She died a hero today. She hid her first graders in the cabinets and closets after hearing the gunfire. When the shooter came to her classroom, she told him that her students were in the gym. He then gunned her down and moved on. She saved the lives of all of her students. Please pass this on if you see it. She deserves to be remembered for her bravery.’

    Victoria Leigh Soto is the Hector “Macho” Camacho of Sandy Hook Elementary School!

      I know what you mean, but I’d rather say that she was the Obi-Wan Kenobi (Star Wars IV reference) of that school. She was at the right place, at the right time, knew she’d die and sacrificed herself to help others.
