Hazlewood, MO- In this well to due suburb of St. Louis, everyone thought they were safe from terrorism. Thanks to Billy Smith, they still are.
Today Billy was awarded a citation for bravery from the mayor of Hazlewood. The reason for the award; stopping another student who was actually a terrorist in disguise. The accused student is said to have been bragging about a dangerous chemical compound that he snuck into the schools science fair.
Billy tells us his story. "I was scared, I mean really scared. He (the other student) was going on about something called dihydrogen monoxide. I wasn't really paying attention at first cause my dad said that science is un-Christian, he said it's true cause that's what the President says. My own project was healing through pair. Anyways, what I did hear was making me kinda nervous and scared. I thought then that maybe this other kid was a terrorist. My dad also taught me that I should be fearful and suspicious of anything I don't understand, he said that's what the President says also. Well, I'm standing there listening to him go one about something called dihydrogen monoxide. I didn't know what it was but it sounded dangerous. The kid was saying that you could kill someone with it, that it was found in car batteries, and that it can be a gas, liquid, or even aerosol! Right then I was about to go tell a teacher when he said he had some right there with him! Without thinking I ran over to a volcano project, pointed it at him and let loose."
The accused student suffered burns to his face and arms and was rushed to the hospital. The mayor made a brief speech when giving the award to Billy saying that she hoped this was a warning to all potential terrorist out there not to try to bring dangerous chemicals into our schools.
