Dang. Major hero worship to this 7 year old girl who jumped in front of a gunman to shield her mother from a spray of deadly bullets. I’ve featured and interviewed a lot of brave women on Girls Can’t WHAT?™, but Alexis Goggins takes the cake. No fear. I want to meet this girl! I think she has inspired a new super hero design. Wow!
For those of you holding your breath on the outcome of this story and afraid to click the link to read the full story, Alexis is currently in stable condition with 6 gunshot wounds to her head and torso. She is recovering well, although she has a long way to go…
A hero’s fund has been set up for Alexis:
Checks should be made out to the Alexis Goggins Hero Fund and sent to Campbell Elementary School in care of the Alexis Goggins Hero Fund, 2301 E Alexandrine St, Detroit, 48207. For information, call (313) 494-2052.
Strange thing here is that I didn’t see this on the news. I only found out about it by reading other people’s blogs. Why isn’t this all over the news? This is an amazing story!
Oh – and get this…the gunman was a four-time convicted felon. What happened to 3 strikes and you’re out?
