Dan Proft: Kendrick Castillo: Real Man

In our era of entitled youth and young men weakened by safe-spaced college campuses and fears of their own toxicity, it’s easy to fret for America’s future.

And then we are reminded of the existence of resolute, faithful young men prepared to defend to the death the civilized against the barbaric.

Enter Kendrick Castillo.

Castillo is the young man who bum-rushed one of the shooters who opened fire on their Colorado charter school and their 1800 classmates.

Kendrick Castillo took a bullet in the chest and laid down his life to save the lives of an incalculable number of others.

“I wish he had gone and hid, but that’s not his character,” said Castillo’s father. But, he went on, “His character is about protecting people, helping people.”

I wish we could bottle and sell whatever it was Kendrick Castillo’s parents did to raise such a courageous young man.

Michael Medved: No Two Sides on Gaza Rockets

The old-saying “there are two sides to every argument” does not apply to violent exchanges between Israel and the Gaza terrorists of Hamas and Islamic Jihad.

Without provocation or purpose, Palestinian terrorists launched 690 rockets against Israel, striking schools and hospitals while murdering four civilians.

Israel responded with intense air strikes, aimed at military targets and militant leadership. The only public explanation for Palestinian attacks involved the desire to disrupt Israeli Independence Day and the Eurovision song competition in Tel Aviv.

Nevertheless, U.S. Representative Rashida Tlaib sympathized with such random acts of destruction, asking: “When will the world stop dehumanizing our Palestinian people who just want to be free?”

For 14 years, residents of Gaza have been totally “free” of Israeli rule and all Jewish settlements and yet they somehow believe that firing rockets at innocent Israelis counts as brave and productive.

It’s not just insanity, it’s self-destructive evil.

Owen Strachan: The Age of Heroes Is Not Over

Cometh the hour, cometh the man.

The recent tragic shooting outside of Denver provides some healthy reminders for us.

None of us knows the hour of our death. We can’t choose the moment when we will be forced to show courage. But when that time comes, we must be ready.

When two shooters opened fire in the high school, eight were injured and one was killed—a senior named Kendrick Castillo.

When the shooter entered his classroom, Kendrick sprang into action. A female classmate told NBC News of his bravery, “That’s when Kendrick lunged at him, and he shot Kendrick, giving all of us enough time to get ourselves safe, and to run across the room to escape.”

Another student, future Marine Brendan Bialy, helped take down the other shooter.

These brave young men put their lives on the line to save others. They remind us that the age of heroes is not over.

The hour came, and the men showed up.
