The Ultimate Sacrifice. Unhyphenated.
In all the horrible news we’ve heard from the Sandy Hook massacre, let’s take a minute to bring attention to the teachers that exhibited American Exceptionalism. Victoria Lee Soto and Principle Dawn Hochsprung literally gave their lives protecting their students. Victoria used her body as a shield for her students. Dawn lunged at the shooter trying to stop him.
There’s certainly many teachers out there that would do the same. These two, however, gave their life. That is the ultimate sacrifice. It is unhyphenated help to children of all races, backgrounds, religions…it is simply help. These two women are heroes and we should honor them as such.
While you’ve surely heard a bit about these women already, read more about them here: http://www.nypost.com/p/news/local/heroic_teachers_made_the_ultimate_yUlKFrK5Xq0l0bA3CMl65I
