Heroes

Yesterday, we had the priveldge of attending the 99th Annual Commonweath Awards for Honor and Rescue. Ordinary men ,women and children, who became heroes when the helped to rescue another person. It was a very emotional even,t and some of the rescued people were also there.  There were also awards to organizations who promote saftey on the water, and other volunteers who man boats and professionals who also work on the water. I am glad that there is an organization that honors these people.

With the earthquake and tsunami in Japan, the volunteers helping the professionals are greatly needed and appreciated. I heard people in the supermarket asking strangers if their families were safe in Japan.
