I’m sure you’ve already heard about the shootingin a Tennessee church: a lone gunman walked in during a children’s production of Annie and began shooting. The shooting, however, did not end with a lengthy stand-off. Instead, “Two congregants tackled the gunman.” Wouldn’t you like to know more about those two? I would.
I know that they’re the same kind of people who kept United Flight 93 from turning into another building-bomb. I know they’re the same people who leap in front of subway trains to rescue someone who has fallen onto the tracks. I know they’re the same type of people who fall onto grenades. And every time I read about people like this, I wonder who are they? What special thing do they have inside of them that enables them to display such selfish heroism?
