Student Who Wanted to be Soldier Makes Ultimate Sacrifice for Classmates

This is what a true hero looks like.

When it comes to the horrific school shooting at Santa Fe High School in Texas, you’re more than likely going to hear the mainstream media drone on and on about how much gun control is needed and other such nonsense.

What you aren’t probably going to hear a lot about are the heroes involved in the incident, such as Christian “Riley” Garcia, a 15-year-old student who gave the ultimate sacrifice to save the lives of his fellow classmates.

This is a tale that’s both tragic and inspiring.

Keenan Smith, the Garcia family’s pastor, told the outlet of his parishioner’s brave actions.

“[Christian] was holding the door shut when the shooter was trying to gain access into that art room … the shooter shot through the door, taking his [Christian’s] life,” Smith told CNN.

According to the report, Christian was able to keep the mass killer at bay long enough to allow students to escape through an alternate route.

“He was against the door trying to help his teacher, trying to help another student, and trying to shield the others there,” Smith said.

Christian’s pastor went on to state that the young man had planned on going into the military after high school, making it clear that he truly had a heart to serve and protect others, a trait that was deeply ingrained in who he was.

We live at a unique time in history where heroes are in short supply. The example of Garcia’s sacrifice serves as a lesson for each and every American that love gives itself for others, even if it means forfeiting one’s life.

While there are times that future generations look completely lost on an emotional and psychological level, kids like Garcia remind us that not all of them are beyond hope. In fact, most of them are good kids with bad teachers, both in school and at home.

Let’s hope the kids Garcia died to save always remember the sacrifice he made for them and never allow his memory to fade in their minds.

VIDEO: Mike Rowe Delivers Summary Of Democratic Candidates’ Economic Agenda

Published

on

Mike Rowe, America’s favorite champion of the average, blue collar worker, is on a promotional tour for his new book, “The Way I Heard It,” and stopped by “Fox & Friends,” where he gave a summary of the economic agenda currently being pushed by the Democratic candidates running for president. Here’s what he had to say, via The Daily Wire: “When you have a half a million Americans sleeping out on the street today…and then you also have three people owning more wealth than the bottom half of American society, that is a moral and economic outrage,” said Sanders. “So if you are asking me, do I think we should demand that the wealthy start paying — the wealthiest top one-tenth of one percent — start paying their fair share of taxes…Yes, that’s exactly what I believe.” The hosts then played a clip of frontrunner Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA), who is also running on an aggressive tax-the-rich plan. “Taxing income is not going to get you where you want to be the way taxing wealth does,” she said. “We need a wealth tax in order to make investments in the next generation.” Asked about his response to the Democrats’ various economic plans, particularly Sanders’ 97.5% tax on the 400 wealthiest Americans, Rowe said, “Yeah, okay. It’s a free country. Float ‘em. Fly ‘em. Run ‘em up the old flagpole — see who salutes.” He then offered a memorable summary of his takeaway from Tuesday’s debate. “Look, in the end you’ve got millionaires arguing with millionaires over who hates the millionaires the most,” said Rowe. Rowe went on to say, “And I guess it’s a conversation we’ll have, but I remember a couple of years ago, I took my meager staff over the Reagan Ranch … One of the stories they…

‘The View’ Co-Host Joy Behar Argues Politics With Stranger While On Vacation; Says Trump Is ‘Destroying The Planet’

Published

Joy Behar, co-host of “The View” so despises President Trump that she cannot seem to allow herself, or the rest of the human race, a break from constantly bashing and slamming the man, even while she’s supposedly taking a vacation. Behar, who recently took a trip to London, ended up getting into an argument over politics with a complete stranger, claiming Trump is “destroying the planet.” Via The Washington Times: “When I was in London, I was in the war rooms and I got into an argument with a Trump supporter,” she said, NewsBusters reported. “All he said to me is, ‘Why can’t you give him a chance the way we gave Obama a chance?’” Ms. Behar scoffed at the idea. “Give him a chance? He’s destroying the planet!” she said. “He’s destroying the democracy. He doesn’t know what he’s doing. He’s writing stupid letters to Erdogan. He’s killing people far away from us who did nothing but help us. Give him a chance? That’s the argument you’re giving me underground?” Getting into an argument with a stranger wasn’t the only excitement for Behar on her trip. She was apparently pickpocketed as well. “I got robbed at Harrods,” Behar recounted. “They stole my wallet. I was pickpocketed, yes.”
