The school shooting at Virginia Tech was the first one that really impacted me.

The school shooting at Virginia Tech was the first one that really impacted me. As a professor, knowing that this kind of violence was coming to our campuses scared me, and made me think of what I would do in situations like those confronted by the victims at VT. Since then, many many more shootings have occurred; terrorism is also now a way of life, so we live in a constant state of expectation and fear. Unfortunately, with more violence, more heroes, since people are called upon to act in super-natural ways given violent situations. The Virginia Tech prof discussed in this case study was one of the first. With this in mind: What moral perspective BEST exemplifies what the Virginia Tech Professor did? Or better yet, what would you do if you found yourself in a similar situation? What moral perspective would define your actions?
