The reason you’ve never heard of Parkrose High School in Portland, Oregon — and why it isn’t on this year’s list of school shootings — is because of Coach Keanon Lowe, the Oregon High School football coach was able to disarm a student with a shotgun preventing a possible massacre by talking him down and hugging him.
Last May, a student came to school with a shotgun. Lowe disarmed the student and then embraced him.
This is unbelievable…unreal…a high school coach from Oregon disarms a student with a shot gun and embraces him. Who knows how many lives this guy saved.

It’s speaks volumes for a man to put himself in danger to save others. He seen that the potential shooter was a victim to his illness, that’s power!
Keanon Lowe is a hero! We salute a brave and courageous Black King! It sends a message to us about being selfless!
