By now many are aware of the tragic shooting that took the lives of 17 students at Douglas High. As many continue to remember their loved ones, others are still grateful for their own lives. Anthony Borges is one of those students.
Borges is one of the last to be released from the hospital after the shooting. Many are still appreciative of his heroism. During the shooting on Feb 14th, it was said that Borges held the door back (attempting to help classmates) as the 19-year-old shooter began letting off rounds of bullets, ultimately causing Borges to be hit by at least 5. Thankfully after going through 9 surgeries he is now home safe.

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!
