Hero Bookkeeper Attends State of the Union

Antoinette Tuff, a Georgia bookkeeper deemed a hero after talking down a school shooter, joined first lady Michelle Obama at the State of the Union Tuesday night.

Tuff, speaking with CNN's Chris Cuomo,  shared her experience at the speech and weighed in on another hero of the night – Sgt. First Class Cory Remsburg.

Remsburg is the man who received a nearly two minute standing ovation for his sacrifices in Afghanistan. (See more about Remsburg HERE.)

Tuff, reflecting on heroism, said her own experience taught her that "God uses all of us in different ways. And it's a great point to see why you have to be prepared for your purpose."
