    Newtown Educators Slain In Shooting To Be Honored With Presidential Medals By White House


    HARTFORD, Conn. Presidential medals will be awarded posthumously to the six people who died protecting children at Sandy Hook Elementary School, officials said Tuesday.
    The principal, school psychologist and four teachers who were killed in the Dec. 14 massacre will be among the recipients of the 2012 Presidential Citizens Medal, according to a White House official. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because the honorees have not been officially announced.
    If anyone deserves it, it's them.

    Thoughts?

    If it were Canada, if the rules of it being a military decoration didn't apply, and I was PM, I'd have the Victoria Cross for each of them.

    Likewise for the Medal of Honor.

    The Presidential Medal of Freedom is the civilian equivalent of the Medal of Honor. I would assume that is what they will be awarded. No doubt they deserve it. I hope it can at least give their families a small comfort.
