Quick! You need to destroy all your kitchen knives, golf clubs, any tool you may have in your house, cut down every tree and destroy it (you can make weapons from wood), remove any phone cords, power cords, and pretty much everything else you own. They can be used to kill people, too. Everything must be banned, or we won't be safe!!!!

Thank you Antoinette Tuff for your bravery. I have no doubt that you saved many lives, including yours and the would-be shooters.

We have enough youth. We need a fountain of smart.

The lady is a bookkeeper? She should be the counselor!

No my dear that was from the gut not a text book. Had it been a real counselor doing that he/she would not have been successful because they would be going for the text book version and it would not have worked.

So we agree. She has a God-given talent to work with people.

A true hero. So much for Rush Limbaugh's and the NRA's childish and over-simplified contention that the only way to stop a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

Love this story.

God Bless her with every good gift from above?

Side note: Has there been any studies done on why these people pick schools?
05:06 AM on 08/23/2013
Yes.

Maybe it's because god chooses to look the other way.

So is he going to really get the medical help he desperately needs or just go to prison instead?!
05:08 AM on 08/23/2013
Depends on what "health insurance" he has and what or if the cover or have benefits for mental health, if so, if it will last as long as the treatment he needs.

Any positive comments from the right?
02:26 AM on 08/23/2013
I have heard many positive comments from all sides, who can fault someone who conducted themselves as an angel from God?
02:30 AM on 08/23/2013
I think I would be considered on the right for the most part..I'm pretty conservative. This woman is a hero and she deserves some type of formal commendation for her bravery and ability to think on her feet. I wish there were more people in the world like her.

with all the terrible news lately, this lady helped restore a little faith in the goodness of people. I hope folks realize the great sacrifice she was willing to make for the safety of those children.

She was wonderful!! Good for her. I worked in the schools for over 25 years and you truly do feel the kids are YOUR kids and you will do anything to talk down a mad man. What she did was perfect in that she understood him on his level and prevented a massacre. The fact that Wayne La Pierre makes eons more that she, is irritating on so many levels.

Not to diminish what she did, but the majority of teachers and school personnel would have done the same exact thing if they would have been presented with the same circumstances. That is part of our training and part of our willingness to protecting our students. That is the part that you don't hear about on school ratings and test results.

Antoinette Tuft really was amazing. Listen to the 911 tapes, if you haven't heard them already. She also has a Non-Profit Org. that takes under-privileged kids on trips. (It's probably explained better on her page.) The link is www.gofundme/41fqvw.

That woman was open to the love of a higher source and it came through her voice to that man. Her open connection to her higher source saved her, him, and all those children. I pray for her. Humanity indeed. May she be even more humbled by the power of goodness, her own ability to be good. Pay if forward, Georgia. Keep your motives clean.

We need more inspiring reminders and icons such as her to truly remember that we are all capable of great compassion, especially when faced with the most dangerous of situations and lives are at stake. Of course, it is easier said than done. However, it did not stop her now did it? Wish we could just focus on the positive and embrace humanity, instead of criticising or be unkind. Peace!

As it is in every part of the world, hatred against something or someone, and racist against one another. Sad ;(

I'm still in tears about Ms. Tuff's will and purpose. She alone, a huge task and in direct danger...expressed through fears Love. She's saved so many lives. She did that!!!
EXTRA-ordinary and Amazing!
