    An absolutely inspiring woman. I could only hope to love and believe in humanity the way she does.

    My wife told me about it last night. Thank God for a feel good story to begin the year. After reading about the Australian baseball player being shot down for nothing by those teens I was sick until I heard this story. This needs some serious air time.

    It is so refreshing to see this kind of love for fellow man to be published in the mist of this incident

    As our district is in the midst of massive security updates to the buildings, I keep thinking that if people treated each other as well as she did, some of these problems would go away.

    If I were in that situation, I don't know if I could handle myself and a gunman so calmly and rationally. What a wonderful woman!

    I love how a news story that could have been a terrible one actually turned out to be one with a happy ending. We need more of these stories in from our media!
