This young man saved multiple lives with his selfless actions. He is undoubtedly a hero. Check it out.
The focus has been on the cowardly a-hole that perpetrated the latest mass shooting in the United States.
The death toll stands at 17, and multiple people have been injured.
If only the FBI hadn’t dropped the ball — this could have been prevented.

Unreal: The FBI Knew About Nikolas Cruz's Death Wish For Students And Did Nothing
Posted by ClashDaily.com with Doug Giles on Thursday, February 15, 2018
But still, within the narrative that is increasingly being hijacked by anti-2A lobby, there are stories of heroism.
And now, here is the story of 15-year old soccer player, Anthony Borges, who took 5 bullets and saved 20 people with his selflessness.
A Florida student is being hailed a hero after saving 20 people during the Parkland school shooting by using his own body to shield them from gunfire.
Anthony Borges, a soccer player at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School just outside Miami, is being treated in hospital after his selfless act on Valentine’s Day.
The 15-year-old was shot five times by alleged mass murderer Nikolas Cruz as the expelled former student, 19, went on a killing spree that claimed 17 lives.
Borges took action when students were confused and didn’t know what to do.
Fellow student and friend of Borges, Carlos Rodriguez, credits the initiative taken by Borges as the reason that he is alive today. ‘[Borges] took the initiative just to save his other classmates,’ said Rodriguez, ‘none of us knew what to do.‘ Rodriguez explains that Borges put his body between the shooter and fellow students allowing them to escape to a locked room. Borges was shot 5 times in the back and legs.
Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel visited Borges in the hospital on Sunday.
The sheriff’s office tweeted: ‘Fortunately, he is recovering, but has a long road ahead with more surgeries needed.
‘Please join us in praying for the swift recovery of Anthony and all others from #StonemanDouglas,‘ it added.
Sheriff Scott Israel was ‘honored’ to visit the boy, his office added.
Borges’ father says that his son called him after he had been shot and downplayed what had happened.
His father Royer, meanwhile, said he asks only that people ‘pray for him’.
Speaking to ABC News, he explained what happened after the massacre: ‘He just called me and says, “Dad, somebody shot me in the back and my leg, too”.’
He added: ‘He’s my hero.’

He’s our hero, too.
I love that his dad asks for prayers as Borges faces more surgeries and the long road to recovery.
Riddle me this:
Will those gun-grabbing leftists that dismiss #ThoughtsAndPrayers refuse to pray for Borges?
The answer to that question will tell you all that you would need to know about them.
Then again, they probably don’t know how to pray.
Let’s educate them as we pray for Anthony Borges.
Does your grandpa go off on paltry politicians, whether they be Democrats or Republicans? Does he get misty eyed when he talks about God and Country and America’s future? And have you ever heard him scream, ‘Awww … Hell no!’ when Rosie O’Donnell starts yapping on television? If you answered yes to one, or all of the above, then your gramps will love Doug Giles’ latest book, My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass.
Don’t be fooled by the title — this ain’t just for Grandpa.
The Snowflake Generation — and the rest of America — needs a good ol’ dose of ‘Grandpa wisdom’.
Especially if that Grandpa is Doug Giles.
You’ll love My Grandpa Is A Patriotic Badass just as much as Grandpa will.
Here’s a shirt for real men (and women, too):
Why be average? It’s so overrated.
Everyone does that.
