TT: Moscow Shooting Victim Tired of Publicity

Transplanted Texan: I hung out with Pete (Moscow shooting victim Husmann) for a while this afternoon, visiting old teachers at Charter. He's getting pretty tired of telling his story over and over again. I don't think he wanted to be a hero, per se, but felt it was the right thing to do. On that front, he and I disagree. I think this little saga shows he's got the heart of a Christian and the brain/maturity of a 20 year old. He says he's done with the media interviews, not out of hatred for the media or anything (he liked the S-R story, said the Press was good but not as good), he's just tired.

DFO: Tell Pete not to worry. His 15 minutes of fame will pass quickly enough. It won't be long until people will quit asking. Then, he might miss the attention. He'll have an interesting tale to tell in the future, however, when fewer and fewer people will remember his role in the shootings.
