This is Victoria Soto. She died a hero. She hid her first graders in the cabinets and closets after hearing the gunfire. When the shooter came to her classroom, she told him that her students were in the gym. He then gunned her down and moved on. She saved the lives of all of her students. Please pass this on if you see it. She deserves to be remembered for her bravery.

On December 14, 2012, 20-year-old Adam Peter Lanza fatally shot twenty children and six adult staff members at Sandy Hook Elementary School in the Sandy Hook village of Newtown, Connecticut. Before driving to the school, he had killed his mother, Nancy Lanza, at their nearby Newtown home. After shooting the students and staff members, he committed suicide. The massacre was the second-deadliest school shooting in United States history, after the 2007 Virginia Tech massacre.

The final photo was taken on September 11th, 2001 in New York City after the Twin Towers had been attacked. Any and all of the photos from that day or of that week are very powerful, from the ones of people running from the buildings-all brown from dirt and soot-to the firefighters days after helping put New York back together. I picked one of the most prominent photos as the second tower gets hit. Personally I will never forget when the second tower was hit, and neither will millions of America
