Sarah Huckabee Sanders fought back tears as she read some of the heroes names who gave up their lives to shield others from bullets.
Heroic police officers were among the dead and injured after they acted as human shields to protect others from the bullets. Others helped transport the wounded to the nearby hospital.
Huckabee Sanders choked up as she read the Gospel of John “There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for a friend.”
Please pray for everybody suffering the loss of loved ones and for a speedy recovery for the injured.
