Firefighters, police, medical professionals of all levels, and the Coast Guard are working tirelessly to save lives. They are all heroes. What I find most inspiring, however, is the fact that “everyday people” are out there in their trucks, boats, and Jet Skis when they don’t have to be; they are posting their phone numbers on Facebook so those who need help can reach them. They are risking their lives to help men, women , children, the elderly, those who are ill, and those who have disabilities. Nobody is comparing political views, asking individuals if they suffer from mental illness, or only saving “their kind.” It’s simply people helping people in every way possible, and it is heartening to see.
