Susan Jordan was put to that test. Susan was an elementary school principal standing outside in front of her school as the children got on their buses at the end of the day. An ordinary afternoon until one of the buses lurched over the curb and accelerated toward her and the nearby children.
She spent the last moments of her life pushing those children out of the way and was the only person to die in that accident.
"Indianapolis Mayor Joe Hogsett spoke at the funeral, saying that in an instant, Jordan had a decision to make and she made that decision without hesitation and with courage and unconditional love. That decision didn’t make her a hero, Hogsett said, because she had been a hero long before..."There is a special place for people like Susan Jordan. I hope they were there to welcome her as she came across the Bifröst Bridge.
