All those petulant feminists can put THIS in their ‘toxic masculinity’ pipes and smoke it.
The take-a-knee NFL crowd was hailed as ‘heroic’ — but this guy stepped up and actually WAS heroic.
What does real heroism actually look like? Whatever ELSE it might entail, when one guy protects someone else from danger, at personal risk to his own safety… you’re looking at a real example of it for sure.
There are going to be a lot of questions that need answering with the school massacre in Florida — and Doug Giles has something to say about that:
But on a day swirling with so many uncertainties and unknowns — including the condition of a few victims still in critical condition — one thing is certain.
A genuine hero stood in their midst.
It is with Great sadness that our Football Family has learned about the death of Aaron Feis. He was our Assistant Football Coach and security guard. He selflessly shielded students from the shooter when he was shot. He died a hero and he will forever be in our hearts and memories pic.twitter.com/O181FvuHl3

Football coach Aaron Feis threw himself in front of students as bullets hailed down Wednesday at his alma mater, Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida.
It would become perhaps the final act undertaken by the assistant coach and security guard, who suffered a gunshot wound and later died after he was rushed into surgery, according to the school’s football program and its spokeswoman, Denise Lehtio.
“He died the same way he lived — he put himself second,” Lehtio said. “He was a very kind soul, a very nice man. He died a hero.”
“He died a hero.”
Some of the most powerful words you can say about a man.
And in another part of the school, a janitor and teacher were busy saving lives too:
Meantime, as a fire alarm blared, a janitor diverted senior David Hogg and other students away from the direction of the shooting, Hogg told CNN affiliate KTRK. A teacher then opened a classroom door so they could hide.
“Without her, who knows how many of us would have died, ’cause we were easily 100 feet away from the freshman building,” Hogg said, “and again, we thought this was a drill.”
In a world where so many people measure their value or worth by their popularity, power, influence or wealth… it’s worth remembering that when the chips are really down, none of those things really matter that much.
It is the WAY in which you live that matters.
This guy is remembered as selfless and heroic.
Maybe it’s time we go back to elevating guys like this, instead of the sort of people that are getting rich because they’re ‘internet-famous’.
Society in general would be the richer for it.
