Bless all the teachers who gave their lives and ones that saved as many children as possible.

This shouldn't even be a petition, it should just happen without question for all of the teachers and Children. God bless the teachers who had to make the ultimate sacrifice in harms way. We will never forget and as a nation are eternally grateful.

I strongly agree that this young lady is a true heroe and model teacher who took her job and Christian values seriously! She stood up for all those children and acted quickly, and thanks to that and her bravery to comfront the killer, knowing she was going to die is very honorable!
Thanks to her, all those parents have their children alive today! The other teachers, staff and children who died should also be honored! What a great act of love, dedication and bravery!

They say that she wanted to teach since she was a small child. She tried to defend those children with her life. Makes me think there is still hope for human kind. Along with these medals, I think there should be an annual award given to ONE teacher in the country that displays a true love of teaching. Someone that goes into teaching because they love the learning process. It should be given to that "favorite" teacher, you know, the one you always remember.

She is worthy of honor and the rest of the teachers and children who gave their lives that awful day.

I was appalled that President Obama is given an award this year. If anyone deserved this reward it should have been this young woman or the beautiful children who lost their lives. Brave people tried to save the children that day. And, frightened children were gunned down in cold blood. Lives snuffed out by a crazed young man. Who should have had mental help. I don't know if it would have changed things? We will never know now. However, I am sad that the President chose to accept this honor....

I don't know if it would have changed things? We will never know now. However, I am sad that the President chose to accept this honor. He could have given it to the real place that deserves it today. The families of this school. I am also ashamed of politicians in Washington. america deserves so much better. They need to stop lining their own pockets. And, help the good people who want to work for a living and live in America without starving. Higher gas prices, higher taxes, higher food prices, higher health costs, and so on, and so on. No matter how much you want to have a job, be secure, and spend time with your family. You can't. The government has made sure of that. We are losing Our America. It is no longer We The People. It's whatever this administration see's fit. I'm climbing down from my soapbox now. I hope this young woman is given the recognition she deserves. As well as many other's who tried to save the children.

It is sad to see a teacher protecting the children getting shot with other school children she became a hero, sadly there is no turning back to bad he shot himself, banned the gun, and bring in the gun laws in the U.S.A, forever, God said they shall not kill the third commandment
