Teacher Victoria Soto Real Hero

There are some people who believe America's best days are behind us. Others have fallen victim to the partisan 24/7 cable news coverage that is always searching for who is to blame for the bad news of the day.

I am an optimist and in being so constantly look for young people who will carry this great nation forward into the future. 27-year-old Victoria Soto is a shining example that America's best days are not behind us.

You may have heard of Victoria on the news, she was one of the brave teachers in Newtown Connecticut who used her body to save six and seven year old children when a shooter entered their protected space and opened fire on everyone in sight.

Soto was laid to rest today in Connecticut only six days short of Christmas. She was honored in death for her heroic acts. Before last Friday, I doubt if Victoria Soto considered herself that much difference than anyone else. However, she turned out to be so much more.

The next time you fill down and concerned that America's finest days are behind us, turn off your television set - stop listening to the naysayers and focus your attention on the selfless acts of Victoria Soto and then know there are a good supply of young Americans ready, willing and able to take this great land into the future.
