The brave and the others.


I watched a show tonight, which I had never seen before.  It was called something like “Caught on Camera” with Nick Cannon.

The premise of the show, are scenes which are……  of all things….  caught on camera.  Mostly events which involve accidents, or emergencies, and such.

I watched about 25 minutes or so.

Which brings me to this.

There are some real heroes out there.  Honest to goodness.  I stand up and applaud those people who put their own lives on the line to save another.  Especially Emergency Personnel and First Responders.  I don’t know if I would have that fearlessness, or bravery, within me.

And then… at the other end of the spectrum are….. for lack of a better word…. complete idiots.

In fact, the complete idiots are often the ones who require those brave people to become heroes.

And so in this world… I suppose…..  it takes all kinds.
