4. Maybe the family asked for privacy.

Actually, I have not seen much on the hospitalized students.

7. ABC News story

From http://abcnews.go.com/US/survivor-florida-school-shooting-body-human-shield-protect/story?id=53183609


Survivor of Florida school shooting used his body as human shield to protect classmates


By VICTOR OQUENDOBILL HUTCHINSON Feb 18, 2018, 3:00 PM ET

When he and his classmates came face-to-face with a gunman shooting up their Florida school, Anthony Borges put the lives of others before his own, a friend who survived thanks to the teenager and his father told ABC News.

A soccer player at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School, 15-year-old Anthony placed his body between alleged mass killer Nikolas Cruz and fellow students, Carlos Rodriguez, who said he survived because of Anthony's heroism, told ABC News.

"None of us knew what to do. So, he took the initiative to just save his other classmates," Carlos, Anthony's best friend, told ABC's "Good Morning America."

As gunfire erupted on Wednesday in the halls of Building 12 at the Parkland, Florida, school, Anthony and his classmates rushed to hide in a classroom as the gunman bore down on them, firing randomly and rapidly at students, Carlos said.

10. Heres his gofundme page from the thread

https://www.gofundme.com/anthonyborges

Do I know if it’s REAL or not? No.

From the fundme page:

“Anthony is a victim of the shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School. During this unspeakable tragedy, Anthony was able to save about 20 other students as he attempted to close and lock the door to a classroom. He was shot multiple times (both legs were shot, left upper thigh bone shattered and one bullet went through his back). He has a long road of recovery ahead of him but he is alive and stable.”


Oh that child looks so wasted, he’d better be cruising on some top-notch Demerol goddamit

This is just UNH

Edit - yes, the fundme page is real, according to this report from a tv station:

Royer Borges' co-worker set up a GoFundMe page, which can be found here.

In this day and age and I fear for all the attacks even this student will get from the deplorables.


Peace

16. This child did what NONE of our Republican lawmakers would have done

had they been in that situation. We all know what cowards these men are when it comes to their own lives. That is why no guns are allowed in the halls of congress. May this gentle soul have a speedy and full recovery.
