Ever wonder where all the heroes have gone? Well, we learned of one recently in Noblesville, Indiana. An angry seventh-grade student came into class armed with two handguns and began shooting at students at the middle school. One was critically wounded. That's when Jason Seaman, a seventh-grade science teacher tackled and disarmed the student. Seaman was shot three times and said in an interview that his decisions "were the only acceptable actions… given the circumstances." Seaman put himself in harms way to save the lives of others. It was selfless and courageous. We're reminded that "no greater love hath a man than he lay down his life for another". Seaman's courage amounted to love of his students.  So if you've wondered where all the heroes have gone, look no further than Noblesville, Indiana the home of Jason Seaman.
