This is what a hero looks like

(via Gawker)

A brave teen is being credited with saving the lives of many this week when he threw himself on the a suicide bomber who was about to detonate inside his school.

There were some 2,000 students inside the north-western Pakistan school on Monday when 15-year-old Aitzaz Hasan spotted the bomber, who was dressed in a school uniform, and made the decision to stop him.

Pleas from his classmates went ignored as Aitzaz marched up to the terrorist and confronted him. …

“So he told [his classmates] ‘I’m going to stop him. He is going to school to kill my friends,'” an eyewitness recalled. “He wanted to capture this suicide bomber. He wanted to stop [him].”

Speaking with the Express Tribune of Pakistan, Aitzaz’s father Mujahid Ali echoed those sentiments: “My son made his mother cry, but saved hundreds of mothers from crying for their children.”
