Randleman a true hero

In my opinion, the word “hero” is way overused. I won’t mention any one specific case; I don’t want to burst anyone’s bubble. But, to me, a hero is someone who sees a dangerous, even life-threatening situation and jumps in anyway.

Craig Randleman is one such person: a hero in the first degree. My hat’s off to him. I’m sorry that I can’t remember the name of the other guy, but he’s every bit as much a hero. I wish I could have a beer with both of them.

I’m no hero. I have a 9 mm I would have used. And I’m glad the little girl is all right, too. She met her heroes. I hope she is never forced to meet another one.
