hammers kill more peole via murder than all guns added together, not to mention swimming pools and auto accidents. I do however aghree with many of the recent suggestions that do NOT call for a ban on any freedoms. Those willing to trade freedom for security will get, and will deserve neither.

What a crock to say that hammer kills more people than guns. 30,000 people a year did not die from hammers. Get real

I live in Stratford, Ct and I had visited were Victoria is laid to rest as I approached the site I saw her mother in her car crying. no one should ever have to bury there children. from what I found out about Victoria she truly deserves this medal of honor and the President should present it to her mother.

Jennifer....You are so right. No parent should ever have to bury there child. I buried my younest son on 12-3-04 exactly 3 days before his 33rd birthday. I guess the most diggicult time for me was havin to watch my son die over a three week period of time. He was involed in a motorcycle accident on 10-10-04, but his death didn't come until 10-29-04. The empty spot never leaves and you always feel a darkness. I am so sorry this woman is havin to go through this.

Of course Victoria Soto of Sandy Hook concerns ending gun violence. She is worthy of the Presidential Metal for her actions as an individual. She is also worthy as a great representative of the quality effort and risks taken by all teachers to bring quality education to our children.

Because of Victoria Sota, and other faculty members, The Pricipal, The School Psychologist, and many others, many student's lives were saved. I think these heroic people should get awards, and their names should go down in history for being heroes. Their memories should be kept alive for future generations because of the magnitude of selflessness of how they gave their lives for their students. What dedication! I think it is great that they are building a school in Stratford and naming it after Victoria Soto.

After watching a video that alludes to what you are saying I thought about it but right now I'm going with the fact that it's true and adults and children were murdered in cold blood. I RESPECT YOUR OPINION but as I stated, I believe it was a real and horrible situation.
