The Mass Shooting that Didn’t Happen:
Averting Violence with Kindness
On August 20, 2013, at an elementary school in Georgia, school staff
member Antoinette Tuff faced a heavily armed gunman who threatened her along with 800 students and their teachers. As revealed in the recording of her call to 911, Antoinette effectively and compassionately convinced him to surrender, and averted a potential tragedy in a deeply courageous and caring manner.
