Unsung hero

One thing in particular caught my eye in this sad story about the shootings in the US:

"Calhoun said that the two students behind him were shot, but that he believed they survived. Just before he climbed out the window, Calhoun said, he turned to look at his professor, who had stayed behind, apparently to prevent the gunman from opening the door.

The instructor was killed, Calhoun said."

If there is a way to go, I would want go standing in the line of fire, protecting the people I care about against all the odds. We don't even know the professor's name but he or she? - went beyond the call of duty to help his - or her - students escape. And gave his life in the process. Tell me if that act of courage and selflessness does not make you brim over.
