Zurana Horton

Today's awesome woman is Zurana Horton. She died using her body as a living shield to protect children. Not her children; just children who were in danger. But she was poor, black, on public assistance, and had many kids ... so for those sins she was scorned by the media and public more than she was lauded. I call bullshit. That woman was a hero and you are an asshat if you think otherwise.
