Indiana teacher Jason Seaman took three bullets while swatting the gun out of the shooter’s hand. This right here is a hero, and he deserves recognition.
He could have hidden or ran, but he showed his courage and love for his students by charging the shooter and tackling him to the ground. He was shot three times in the process but was able to stop the gunman.

A gutsy science teacher single-handedly took down a student shooter at an Indiana middle school, stopping the gunman before anyone was killed Friday morning, authorities said.
Jason Seaman, an instructor at Noblesville West Middle School, didn’t hesitate when the male student interrupted a test by walking into a classroom armed with two handguns — and opened fire.
“Our science teacher immediately ran at him, swatted a gun out of his hand and tackled him to the ground,” said seventh-grader Ethan Stonebraker. “If it weren’t for him, more of us would have been injured for sure.”
The student fired off several rounds before Seaman, a former defensive end for Southern Illinois University, took three bullets while tackling him, according to witnesses and his mother.
A young girl was shot and is in the hospital now. Had it not been for this heroic teacher, many students could have died. He is an American hero. The media loves to recognize the shooters and make them famous. We should instead make this man famous. He is what we all should strive to be. He was willing to lay down his life for others. That’s the definition of love.
Thank you, Mr. Seaman, for your bravery. I’m proud to be a Noblesville Miller today.
