I've read the story and heard the 911 recording they released, sounds like that woman kept her wits about her when it counted most. Good for her! No telling how many kids she saved. I guess she kind of fell apart after it was over, but that's the best time to do it nothing wrong with that.

Talk about Tuff Enuff!
Antionette is my kinda woman, you gotta love it when a hero steps up to the plate.

Blessed are the peacemakers,
for they will be called children of God.

I think maybe there are lots of kids and teachers are alive right now, because of this woman's actions. The way she kept her head about her, and terrific courage to sit there staying calm and talking the guy down, OMG she even got him to lay down their weapons and go peacefully under arrest! I know the word "hero" is tossed around pretty freely these days, but this everyday woman really proved what it means to 'have the right stuff' when the chips are down, and it really counts. I can only hope I would be that brave if ever needed to be and I hope I never need to be!
