  •  5 died, MSNBC or ABC this AM reported that (0+ / 0-)

    her cousin is being widely interviewed and he repeats what his family members told him that the police told them

    He is interviewed more widely than family of any other teacher so we hear about Vicki more

    I too feel or worry about being a wet blanket ie don't want to detract. But also, because of the lock down protocol to hide the kids lock the door

    the teachers who died, perhaps most of them, likely died like or similarly to Vicki

    that protocol protected kids first. I saw three teachers who survived locked down with students interviewed. They related what they did how they told kids they'd be safe they were loved it would be ok how they held doorknobs closed pushed furniture musical instruments against doors. One music teacher holding door closed with own hands while shooter banged on other door yelling Let Me IN...all said while weeping

    little did they know their stories reveal their own incredible deep love for these kids and heroism. WE can extrapolate and know the dead teachers were likely coming from the same place. It is hard to imagine someone coming from that place not protecting the kids with her body (you just have to see these teachers the FIERCE protective love eminating from them) if the shooter actually confronted them.
