Thanks for the input. For a while, I did question my actions. However, I reacted according to my training and the situation. Everyone I spoke with said I made the right call. If the same situation was to present itself, I now possess the strength to make the right call again. Some never recover from a scenario where lethal force is involved. My oldest was a Lion King fan, and a quote from Rafiki sums it up.
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But from the way I see it, you can either run from it, or… learn from it.”
I chose to learn from it.
Never challenge a man who has nothing left to lose.
