I didn’t know if this was too much to post but boy this I think maybe the true meaning of laying your life down for another... As we move forward working together to create a positive change, many are still as I’m being told are fighting for their lives! #Teachers #Coaches even #Students shielding themselves to protect other students! This young man one of which #AnthonyBorges 15 years old I was told, covered the door (covering 20 students) as the shooter began shooting! #Praying for this young man and others! #MarchingForOurLives #MotivationMonday #GodIsAble Doesn’t have to be your family to care!
Friends say the teen was shot 5 times after trying to close the door to prevent (19 year-old Nick Cruz) from shooting inside the room where 20 other student were. According to the NYPOST.COM, Anthony took it upon himself to help others.
“None of us knew what to do,” said Carlos Rodriguez, Borges’ best friend.
“So he took the initiative to just save his other classmates.”
Borges’ father, Royer Borges, referred to him as his personal “hero.”
“He just called me and says, ‘Dad, somebody shot me in the back and my leg, too,'” recalled Royer.
“He’s my hero,” the dad said. “I only ask that people pray for him.”
Coach Aaron Feis along with others, also risked their lives to save students but unfortunately Coach Aron did not make it according to reports.
