A Texas woman who was wounded while shielding her sons during the attack on a Dallas protest march thanked officers Sunday and said she would go to another demonstration to show her boys that she’s not a quitter.

Shetamia Taylor, who attended the march with her four sons, thanked Dallas police for protecting her in the chaos that erupted Thursday night.

“I want to say thank you to the officers,” she said during an emotional press conference at Baylor University Medical Center. “They were really heroes for us. They saved my life, my son’s life and I want to say thank you to them first and foremost.”

She says officers shielded her as bullets whizzed through the air around them.
