#Ferguson: Student Boldly Stands To Protect Police

We’ve endured flame wars and social media sniping over the Megyn Kelly/Donald Trump dust-up, and racial tension in Ferguson, Missouri, has raised its ugly head again.

But out of Ferguson came your Feel Good Story of the Day.

On Monday night in Ferguson, 19-year-old nursing student Lexi Kozhevsky made a simple but profound gesture of support for that city’s beleaguered police by merely standing in front of a line of officers during last night’s tension.

The picture was tweeted out by St. Louis Dispatch photographer Lynden Steele, along with Lexi’s simple statement, “I would rather get hit by something than let something hit them.”

She explained her actions in this interview.

The story went viral, and inevitably the creative types at Twitter paid homage to this brave young woman.

And with a Star Wars reference:

And even Bobs Burgers:

Lexi Kozhevsky will probably be forgotten by week’s end. Other diversions will emerge in this world of instantaneous information to distract everyone’s attention. But for one brief moment, Americans saw a young woman — not glamorous, or connected, and certainly not a Kardashian — whose quiet, modest gesture demonstrated human behavior at its most virtuous.
