CNN had an article with the headline "Heroes of Virginia Tech" so I imagine there were several people who did heroic things. I didn't read it because I'm about done with that coverage - too much sensationalism and too sad for me. :-/

I know there were some students who held doors shut on the guy. I'd consider them heroes, too.

Ah, very good then. I've strayed away from the stories as well. I got Time the other day and while it had victims on cover, they had a large page picture of the gunman pointing a gun at the read. Nearly life size. Not cool. :-t

Yeah, there were students who barricaded doors too. I know one who was shot in the arm but still survived. :-/
