I suggested ATS support this extraordinary act with a push to,see recognition given by a major sponsor/s and maybe provision of a scholarship to a US University.
There have been a number of Posts creating duplicate threads relating to the heroic action of a Pakistani schoolboy who sacrificed his life ensuring that his friends and school chums survived yet another suicide bombing being carried out in the name of God knows what.
I am truly in awe of this lads bravery, it is selfless and hopefully his actions will be acknowledged world wide. It will hopefully have been noted by the mods and owners of this site that I suggested ATS support this extraordinary act with a push to see recognition given by a major sponsor/s and maybe provision of a scholarship to a US University. Strangely no-one on ATS appears to have supported such a suggestion, whatever!
What grieves me additionally is to be criticised by anyone for daring to mention that the post about this lad had already been instigated. Not that I don't have a thick skin, but unwarranted criticism is a waste, bit like selective ignoring of facts but there you go sh*t happens!
May I simply point out for the sake of clarity that what appears to have been a 4th repeat does not help the cause but simply dilutes the effect that one very good initial OP made, a second might add, but by the time you get to a 4th the effect is diminishing somewhat.
And, no, for the benefit of what appears to be more than one little bête noir, I don't spend 24/7 on ATS, but I do tend to try have a look around before I commit to a thread. No one is perfect though and if I duplicate I would happily accept being pointed in the right direction.
There We Are Then See!
