I’m a teacher. I don’t get paid to take a bullet for anyone. I also don’t get paid to take my revolver to work and address a shooter with it. I resent what this commentator, along with the editorial discretion of the local NPR station, would project upon me. A decision to put oneself at risk on behalf of another is a sacred decision and nobody else’s business.
You can see my reply comment on the NPR website, if you are interested.
