Parkrose High School teacher and football coach, Keanon Lowe, is the definition of a true compassionate hero.

Below is the video of him disarming and then fully embracing an emotionally distraught student with a “bear hug.”

The student had brought a shotgun to school and proceeded to aim it at himself…

“In that time, I felt compassion for him,” Lowe said. “A lot of times, especially when you’re young, you don’t realize what you’re doing until it’s over.”

…If only the world had more people like Coach Lowe. Thank you for your compassion and understanding.
