  •  I see both. I see her love (0+ / 0-)

    I heard suriving teaches weep as they talked about being locked down in closet with kids. How amazing they ALL were! telling kids they loved them their parents loved them. One said, weeping, "I am the first classroom I knew he'd get us I thought we were all going to die. I thought what my six year olds would last here I told them I loved them that their parents loved them and would come get them soon and that they would be fine. They were so brave (sobs) they were perfect". ANother, the music teacher, held a second door closed with her hands while the shooter banged on another door shouting LET ME IN (!!)

    I cannot overstate the compassion and fierce love I saw in these women. It is OBVIOUS to me that VIcki died in similar circumstances  and felt the same way.

    SHe died for what she believed in. So like her family does I do take some comfort in that as well. I will try to find the link to the interview I saw.
