We Need a Hero

It's not only been a busy day, it's Amazonian climate again. This is not the May in Vermont I've known. But what can you do? Ya just have to deal.

So I won't be sitting here long but I had to share this terrific hero story. Cause we all need a hero now and then.

Catch up with you tomorrow.

Hey Laura,
After nearly two months of cold, rainy and horrible weather here, a bit of "Amazonian" weather would be somewhat welcome. Send it over :)
Superdad is a hero!
Take care and stay cool, if you can.

Pretty cool character to jump down there so close to train time.

I love stories like these. However, I know that everyday there are heroes all around us who go quietly about their business, but will stop to help those in need, no matter the cost to them. I am proud to have met a few.

A dad to be proud of.

Hats off to the man. I bet he's right, too, that will make his kids stay back forever!

Austan, thanks for this story. Every dad longs to be a hero to his kids. In doing, one creates future heroes of them. The man did good.

Gary! Sending it. You are welcome to it!
Most Dads are heroes in one way or another. Look in the mirror, you've got one there.

Lawless- There's a guy with good timing and a great heart.

Arleen- Me too. There's a little hero in all of us, methinks.

EC- I bet they're bragging at school. ;)

Carrie- I think they learned a lot in that subway station.

Geo.- Totally agree here. I think he taught them how to be a hero, too. And gave them a memory and family story for generations. Not to mention saving a life!
