Kudos to Colorado Middle School teacher David Benke who courageously stopped a school shooting.

A gunman entered a middle school in Littleton, CO and began shooting students. He only wounded two because a brave math teacher along with some other staff decided it was going to happen in that school. They tackled him to the floor and subdued until police arrived.

Littleton, CO is home of Columbine High School which was the site of a horrible mass murder in 1999. Thanks to David Benke, it didn't happen again this week. We need a few more heroes like that in our world today.
