Victoria Soto died a hero, saving her students during the Newtown, CT massacre

This is Victoria “Vicki” Soto, 27. She was a first grade teacher at Sandy Hook Elementary in Newtown, Connecticut. On Friday the 14th, when she heard the first gunshots of the rampage coming from nearby, she managed to hide all of her first grade students in cabinets and closets in the classroom. When the gunman came to her classroom, she told him that her children were at the school gym, after which he killed her.

Many more children could have died during the Sandy Hook massacre. Thanks to Victoria Soto, a lot more children got to see another day.
