Another hero has emerged from the Marjorie Stoneman Douglas shooting. A librarian saved the lives of 50 students and five adults when a gunman opened fire.
Brave Diana Haneski took 55 people into the media room at the back of the Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School’s library, effectively saving their lives.
She locked the door and made everyone hide behind whatever they could find while the gunman rampaged through the halls, killing 17 and wounding at least 14.
The most remarkable part of this story is how she was prepared for such an attack.
Diana said she knew what to do because her friend had told her about what it was like when she worked at Sandy Hook. “She was there that day in Sandy Hook and because of her I knew what to do.”
“People said to me: ‘What an incredible coincidence that you have such a close friend who could have the same experience’.
“I feel angry that anyone had to experience that horror.”
As soon as Diana heard the Parkland school’s lockdown warning she jumped to action – even before a single shot had been fired.
She shouted at students: “‘Get back in here! Get back in here!'”
If it wasn’t for her, many more would have died.
Will you ‘SHARE’ her heroism?
