“The Bravest Thing I’ve Ever Seen”

Monday, December 10, 2007  |  posted by Hugh Hewitt

Here is a story on some of the victims of yesterday’s shootings in Colorado.  Pray for the Works family, and for the families of the missionaries murdered in Arvada.

The Demver Post has an account of what happened yesterday at Colorado Springs’ New Life Church:

Bourbonnais yelled at the gunman to draw his attention, he said.

“First, I called him ‘Coward’ then I called him ‘S—head’ ” Bourbonnais said. “I probably shouldn’t have been saying that in church.”

That’s when the shooter pointed one of his guns at Bourbonnais and fired, he said.

Bourbonnais ducked behind a hollow, decorative pillar and was hit in the arm by a bullet and fragments of the pillar.

At about that moment, a female guard with a drawn handgun turned a corner and walked toward the gunman and yelled “Surrender!” Bourbonnais said.

The gunman pointed a handgun at the woman and fired three shots, Bourbonnais said. She returned fire and just kept walking toward the gunman pressing off round after round.

The female guard fired off about a dozen shots.

After the gunman went down, Bourbonnais asked the woman, who has only been identified as a volunteer security guard with the church, how she remained so calm and focused.

Bourbonnais said she replied:

“I was asking the Holy Spirit to guide me the entire time.”

Read the whole thing.  Had their not been armed guards on the church campus, the death toll would be exponentially higher.
