    I’m sickened by all the commenters saying it was a hoax (every mass shooting) they’re crisis actors and nobody died. Trolls need to go away. 😡🤬

    US should give immidiate citizenship to this family and at the same time execute the american citizen murderer Nikolas Cruz.

    So a US white male citizen is the monster and killer in this story while a latino immigrant is the hero. What would Donald Trump think about this?

    There is no point in asking couldn't the teachers do it or couldn't the cops do it etc. Point is he did it , the spirit comes out , unsheathed in all it's magnificence in times of utter chaotic crisis. He is a role model for high school students today who idolize football players, believe that being 'ripped'is cool , have such definitive opinions about what is cool and what being a nerd or geek is. All such useless terms. Look at him.He wears glasses, is thin , not ripped .....nothing! Is he the average high schooler's definition of cool? No way. Let them take a real close look at him to know what being really cool is ....not stupid conditioned definitions but guys like him who are so humble that they don't even know that they have done something heroic.and simply do it as a natural reflex when the occasion demands.My prayers are with him.

    He and the only one other person had the courage to do this. He was lucky enough to survive and held out long enough, the other guy died holding OPEN a door so his friends could escape. They are both true heroes.
