    The 'hero' does what he or she does. They dont talk, they act. Dont know much about his politics but in general...for MOST people...liberal and conservative is just the 'way' they see the solution...not IF they see the problem. I dont know of too many people that arent committed to A solution...we just differ on what that looks like.

    Not to take away from this story but I worked with an E8...PTSD sufferer...recounted his experience during the Kobar Towers bombing. He said there was a kid...19...maybe 20...he was a medic. Had his leg mangled in the blast. He had a tourniquet applied and was being wheeled around in an office chair conducting on-site triage. Heroes are all around us. We take so much for granted.

    Have to agree, when I heard this story, I said to myself...Man, this guy is nearly a superhero.

    There are numbers of these stories of ordinary citizens who step up to help their fellow citizens that never make it to the front page. That is just the way it is. Stories of eleven secret serviceman being serviced by Columbian prostitutes is what sells newspapers.

    And actually if any of you saw a house of fire and knew somebody was inside, who wouldn't try to save them? I think it is something you just react to and question your sanity later.
