We had a school shooting here in Minnesota today, up in Cold Spring. The hero of the day is the teacher who talked the shooter into putting down his gun and going with him to the principal's office. The 15-year-old boy had already shot two other students, one who later died. This teacher had no idea if he was going to leave that gym alive, but he put the welfare of that student and all the other students ahead of his own life. I hope I would do the same thing. I hope I never have to find out.
