Can I get an echo for this brave young man?
Anthony Borges, the then 15-year-old boy who used his body to shield his classmates during the Parkland School Shooting, shows his scars. He was shot 5 times.

Kyle Rittenhouse received VIP treatment.
Anthony's name should be a household name.

This is what the GOP tries to distract us from by crying “woke” “drag queens” “post-term abortions”

How could Anthony's gallantry be used as a distraction? I can't understand how his affray could be twisted to make him the bad guy? His story is one of outstanding courage, death defying sacrifice, & living with not only the horrible memory of that day but consequences of it too. It's an indictment.

No offense was meant by that last spout. If any were taken I apologize. I understand how the other two could be used as distractions but Anthony's story is an indictment on their inactivity, allowing death by gun to overtake cars in 2022. The GOP's heartlessness shows in their every action. VOTEBLUE

He should be enjoying being a teenager but instead has a colostomy bag and scars bc we live in a country where idiots like DeSantis place the value of guns over the lives of teenagers.😠

Thank you for posting this article. I think we need more articles and interviews like this for us Americans to see and hear what happens to the survivors of gun violence.

Don't give up. There are more of us than there are of them but hate sells advertising so the love for another is seen a anomaly to the media.
Never forget that love is as simple as you & me or we.

I'm going to share another link, for folks who have sensitivity to gun violence. But his name should absolutely be the forerunning name when we think of how we as adults want to show up for children his age and younger, just as he showed up.

This young man is a hero. 400 police officers stood around doing nothing in a hallway in front of a room in a school in Uvalde Texas while the shooter killed 19 children & 2 teachers. This young man showed more courage and bravery than any of them. If he was in Uvalde, he would have taken action.

This photo always stops me in my tracks. Every time. I can't imagine how hard he has worked, and is still working, to live and have a good life despite what happened to him.

He and his classmates deserved better.
