You know that story in the New York Post about the hero cop who saved a distraught woman as she jumped from a 4-story building? (http://nyp.st/jTKgmO) Well, I remember him when he was a little boy: he’s related by marriage to my aunt.
It’s scary watching the video, knowing two people barely escaped death, and that I know one of the someones.
Gives a whole new definition to the word “selfless,” doesn’t it?
We’ve all said we love others and put other people first … how many of us go so far as to risk our own lives by putting a stranger first?
I need to re-think this issue of “putting other people first.” I’ve clearly been missing something.
P.S. Way to go, Brian. Your father (like the rest of us) would be so incredibly proud.
