You’ve probably seen the video of the football coach who disarmed the student at an Oregon high school. And you’ve probably heard that he’s a former Philadelphia Eagles assistant coach. ┬áBut I have to say – I can’t stop watching this video because of the love and compassion Keanon Lowe showed that student.

Yes. That kid who showed up to school with a gun, planning to kill. I believe he deserves love and compassion, because maybe, just maybe, it’s a lack of that attention that led to his decision to go to school and inflict the only pain he knew would mimic the pain he’s feeling.

Kudos, Coach Lowe.  Thank you for showing love instead of hate. In that moment, when you saved lives and brought the bad guy down, you did it with a heart full of compassion instead of anger. When you could have used your arms to break a damaged kid, you chose to embrace a broken soul.
