School bus driver saves children

Everyday heroes part I

I saw an inspiring story on the news this week about a school bus driver in Indiana who  saved 11 children from a tornado.

Angel Perry stayed calm under immense pressure and didn’t panic though destruction was literally minutes away. She even counted the children as they ran into the school for safety, seconds before the 18-ton bus was picked up and thrown into a nearby building. Seeing the wreckage  shows what the fate of those children would have been, if she hadn’t acted quickly and courageously.

This reminds me of the incident a few years ago when pilot Chesley ‘Sully’ Sullenberger landed a plane in the Hudson River after it struck a flock of Canada geese. Because of his quick action, all 155 passengers and crew survived.

These are just two examples of normal, everyday people who acted heroically. I know there are many more.

The good news for today is that the world is full of heroes like Angel and Sully. Do you know any heroes? Are you one? Please share your story.
