A blog full of things I find. Thanks internet.
Jarell Brooks, I write about fictional heroes every day. You are a real life hero forever.
A hero in yesterday’s shooting: ”At the end of the aisle, I ran into a woman. She yelled, ‘My kids!’ and I saw she had two young kids with her,” Jarell Brooks, 19, told ABC News. “I made sure they got in the aisle and pushed behind her to make sure she got out of there.” In his effort to protect this family, Brooks was shot in the leg. He’s out of the hospital now, and is being hailed as a hero for his actions. Meanwhile, the woman he saved, Patricia Legarreta, was hit as well, and taken to the hospital — where her boyfriend proposed. She said yes. (ht @sorta_like_art)
I’m just gonna leave this right here.
“I saw someone in distress,” he said. “I’m not the kind of person who would let them be in that situation and me selfishly trying to get myself out of the equation… all she’s trying to do is protect her kids, so I felt like if I could get her out, then maybe I would have gotten out, maybe I wouldn’t. As long as I knew she was OK I was alright.”
Well there you go.
