On July 18, 1984, a coward walked into a restaurant in San Ysidro, CA and committed one of the worst mass shootings in history. There are some powerful and emotional stories that a lot of people probably don't know from the 1984 San Ysidro Massacre. There were some beautiful people inside that McDonald's, shielding their bodies so others wouldn't get struck by bullets. All those people shielded survived, while only one person doing the shielding lived. One heroic individual tried to talk the killer into changing his mind, only to be murdered. Another person was shot five times but managed to crawl down twenty-five steps of stairs and hide in a basement closet while biting on a rag so the shooter wouldn't hear his moans from all the blood loss and pain. This individual went on to become a police captain. The humanity shown inside the restaurant should be an inspiration and an example for all of us.
