We hear about the gang-banging, drug-dealing, shoot-up-the-school types of teenaged boys all the time. So, it’s really wonderful to hear about their opposite numbers.
[Debbie] Shultz's estranged husband stood wild-eyed in the doorway, teeth gritted, pausing almost for dramatic effect, she recalled. Then he rushed toward her, she said, raising a large knife toward her chest.
That's when Shultz's students, 16- and 17-year-old kids, went to her rescue. Several of the youngsters tackled the man, pinning him to the floor and wresting the knife from his hand.
"Those kids are my heroes. I believe God used them to save my life," Shultz, 46, said Wednesday evening, recuperating at home with stitches in her hand and leg where her assailant slashed her with the knife.Like our young soldiers abroad--many of whom are not much older--these kids understand honor and courage. They also know that sometimes you just can't wait around for the professionals to come. Sometimes you have to do the job.
