leonetta sanders

True Hero: This beautiful woman is Leonetta Sanders, Principal of Chicago’s Harper High School, a school that had 29 students shot last year, a school where all of the players on the football team have been shot at.  On this week’s This American Life you hear Principal Sanders trying to save her students, trying to lift them up and carry them through, loving them like they’re all hers -  she’s just mindblowing, a force of nature. That school needs and deserves every grant, every bit of government funding, protective services for the kids, anything and everything it can get.
