::quote:: When the first bomb exploded next to the windows of the school, parents and children began to run out. The terrorists, trying to prevent their escape, threw a grenade at them.


The elderly teacher ran to the grenade to prevent it from exploding on the children. One of the terrorists shot at the teacher to try to stop him and Yanis was wounded in the shoulder – but didn’t give up.


With the last of his strength, he continued to run, jumped on the grenade, covering it with his body. The grenade exploded, and the body of the teacher absorbed the explosion, protecting the children around him from injury. ::quote::


::quote:: Kanidis was shot by the gunmen when he tried to dismantle a ceiling fan in the school gym, where the hostages were being held, which had been wired to an explosive device. ::quote::


Either account evokes love, bravery and sacrifice. Dead is dead; giving one's life in order to save other knows no greater...


This is the way the World ... used to be!


Now, we have ANIMALS sacrificing CHILDREN to their demon god allah!

"Atsamaz is angry with his teachers, “The teachers treated us very badly, they shouted at us not to make a noise. They spread out on the floor, took up all the space and slept, while we spent three days squatting. They’re pigs and not teachers! Only our Russian teacher Albina Fyodorovna tried to look after us. It was she who shouted ‘Don’t go to the toilet, children, they’ll shoot you!’”

Attempts to resist were dealt with harshly. “One man tried to fight the terrorists but they killed him straight away. Two of the women terrorists filmed us on a camera. A woman who’d pushed away a woman ‘shahidka’ [prospective martyr for Islam] was being dragged off, but then they let her alone,” said Atsamaz."

Maybe the one he saw die was this person? It's nice to believe that someone would sacrifice themselves like this, and I posted about it as well, but in the end the truth is a goal for us all.
