Sandy Hook deserves the Award. It is persons like her who have made life worth living.

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

Why does your idea of "freedom" steal "freedom" and life from others?

People have a better chance of surviving a knife attack than an AR-15 rifle.

Hopefully this starting point will result in that action being taken. Very good idea, though!

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.

She died giving the best for all her students. Her mom lost a precious treasure but God used her to save those children. My prayers to his family and my gratitude to this mom that raised a beautiful and bless girl that shows everyone the truly essence of life, love.

So did Lauren Rousseau (the other teacher) and the principal and social worker and school psychologist. Lauren was my daughter's best friend. I know the kind of person she was.

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.

I signed it, but agree, the rest of the staff who died should also be included.

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.

She definitly deserves honor but so does the rest of the staff. The Principal ran after the gunman, children were found in the arms of the other teachers and aides. I say they all deserve honor. I'm sure Victoria would think no less as they were all a team.
