As is true with many heroes, they do not seek personal glory.

The sad thing now is that there are fewer and fewer of us to attest to how, they, to a man, just "did what was needed", instead of looking to 'how does it benefit me'.
There are still plenty who step up. Thinking of all the folks who wear bunker gear or a blue uniform, as well as all military.

Now that I am no longer collassal, and can’t even spell it (comment from dep’t of obscurity), I will agree real heroes don’t blow their own horns. In fact when they are described as heroes, they deny it usually saying, “anyone would have done it”.

As I am anything but new blood, best to go outside and breath forest fire smoke. This is the one smoke in Colorado that doesn’t get you high.


The Airstream is sold; a 2016 Nash 24M replaced it.
