The Heroine Who Gave Her Life for her Students

I cried when I read her story.

Victoria Soto is one of the heroines of Newtown.

I’m at a loss for words to describe how deeply touched I am hearing of this brave woman, who gave her life to protect the children at Sandy Hook elementary school.

From nydailynews.com:

“Teacher Victoria Soto used her body to shield her students from the maniacal gunman who launched a massacre at a Connecticut school.

The family received information she was found shielding her students in a closet,” Soto’s cousin Jim Wiltsie told the Daily News. “She put herself between the gunman and her students.”

Wiltsie said police told the family of Soto’s bravery at Sandy Hook Elementary School.

“I’m very proud to report she was a hero,” said Wiltsie, who is a police officer in Fairfield, Conn. “I would expect nothing less from Vicki. Instinctively her training kicked in. She did what she was trained to do, but also what her heart told her to do.”

He added:

“I want to get this out there,” he said. “Instead of her just being a statistic or number on a piece of paper, I want people to know Vicki’s story and put a face behind what she did for those kids.”

 

“Greater love has no one than this, that one lay down his life for his friends.” John 15:13
