      David Lehive

      Essington, PA

Teacher Victoria Soto died a hero on 12/14/12 in Newtown Ct Sandy Hook Elementary School. She put her students in a closet after hearing gunfire. When the shooter came to her classroom, she shielded every one of her students, and gunned her down. She saved the lives of all of her students. We the undersigned ask President Obama to award posthumously the Presidential Citizens Medal for her valor and heroism to protect the lives under her care. Thank you

To:
President Obama, President of the United States
Award the Presidential Citizens Award Posthumously to Teacher Victoria Soto

Sincerely,
[Your name]
