    In all honesty there is something so inspiring about a person who has been through hard times themselves, like she states in the video, and come out the other side kind people; instead of bitter and jaded or angry. It's humbling.

    Awfully humbling. I'm watching Anderson Cooper interview her right now. She should be an inspiration to everyone.

    That lady has some huge brass ones. Calm as a cucumber despite being scared. That's real true bravery. And showing actual concern for the guy with the gun. Simply amazing.

    Hero is so overused these days it's become pretty much meaningless but it really applies to Ms. Tuff.

    I guess Wayne LaPierre was decidedly wrong when he stated that:

    There are enough threads around to make statements like that. I would hope we could keep this thread about the wonderful person that is the subject of the OP, and not the NRA. Please?

    Wow. Absolutely amazing.
    The whole modern world has divided itself into Conservatives and Progressives. The business of Progressives is to go on making mistakes. The business of Conservatives is to prevent mistakes from being corrected.

    it's in all of us I believe, and it's beautiful when it is displayed ... she treated him almost as if he was her son, she treated him like a human being who was not well and who was more scared than anything else ... I'd love to know more about him as well ...
