Alas, no book reviews today. How about reading the story of a real life superhero? This story is truly inspiring.
Wesley Autrey has been making the news lately. What did he do? Oh, nothing. Out of 80 or so people standing around, waiting on the subway in New York, he just threw himself in harm’s way to save another person’s life. Even with being with faced with injury or death. He’s a father of three and this man decided at the spur of the moment, to save another human life. How awesome is that? I love reading stories like this. Donald Trump has given him $10,000 and he was also awarded the highest medal of honor for civilians by Mayor Bloomberg. Alas, Mr. Autrey has been making the media rounds and it’s been said that David Letterman wants to interview him. What a truly heroic thing to do. Mr. Autrey deserves all of his 15 minutes of fame. He is truly a superhero. You just don’t hear about stories like this everyday.
