James Shaw Jr. was the brave unarmed man who wrestled away Travis Reinking’s AR-15, the gun that he used to shoot inside the Waffle House.
Recently he provided some insights into how he was healing from the traumatic experience in the waffle house.
Shaw revealed that he was having a very hard time dealing with the trauma, so the very next morning after the incident he went to the church.
Our favorite hero, James Shaw Jr. said that he went to the only place where he could heal mentally and spiritually.
‘I just went to church just so I could begin kind of like the healing process and kind of persevere through this situation,’ Shaw said. ‘And I just wanted to be around, you know, some love. My fraternal brothers came to support me. My family was there to support me. The church was there to support me.’

‘It just felt good to be around a lot of love. I actually didn’t want to just be in the house alone or in the hospital. Or detained by the police just to give them statements or something like that,’ James added. ‘It just made sense for me to go to church.’
James Shaw isn’t just a man of faith, he is a true servant of the lord. After the terrible shooting where 4 people lost their lives, Shaw set up a GoFundMe to raise money for the victims’ families.
‘I am creating this page to help the families of the victims from the Shooting that took place at Waffle House in Antioch, TN. Please take the time to donate as all of the proceeds will be given to the families. Thank you again for your generosity and blessings,’ James states on the GoFundMe page.
The fund has reached more than $110,000 so far out of his original goal of $15,000.
