This week we honor the 17 people who were killed in the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, FL. I will not mention the shooter's name. This is in honor of:
And the two heroes this podcast will focus on:
Aaron Feis, a 37 year old security guard and assistant football coach who literally put himself between kids and the shooter.
Scott Beigel, a 35 year old teacher who was shot when he was helping students into his room.
The decisions made by Mr. Feis and Mr. Beigel were not rational. They were emotional. These two heroes played the role of protector. They acted on behalf of the students, the community, and the school. They acted for a purpose higher than themselves. They were selfless and they sacrificed for others. They exemplified what makes humans special.
