The individual citizen is the greatest person I know.
With the building collapses of late, it hurts to turn on the news and see someone suffering because they’ve lost a loved one or because they don’t know whether or not the one they care for is alive or dead.
For some reason we feel JFK, MLK or even Abe Lincoln are the only ones who have done heroic deeds without considering the many regular, ordinary people who just do what is needed at the time. Ever see someone who has stopped for a car wreck? Ever see someone who helps a young mother who has several children and several packages and is trying to secure all this into her vehicle? Heroic deeds don’t need to be BIG they just need to fill a need. Ever take a dish over to an older person for supper?
How many men and women are busy right now helping to remove debris from a collapsed structure?

How many are offering moral support to those who don’t know if their loved one is alive or dead?
