Oh, God Bless Him

…and his brave heart.

As a homeless man opened fire in a Denny’s restaurant, a patron’s decision to try to stop the gunman cost him his life, but allowed others to flee to safety, authorities said Thursday.
According to police, a surveillance video showed Harold Hatley, 73, leaving his seat at the counter and getting in the line of fire, which enabled others to flee.
“Like many brave soldiers and peace officers, Mr. Hatley was walking toward trouble rather than away from it,” Police Chief Joe Cortez said.

Damn. Makes me cry.
