I am from Minnesota where the big bridge collapsed. I have watched the tapes over and over again. Bystanders who jumped in the river to help, passerby's who helped get the children off the bus and also people stranded on the cement that had fallen into the river. Most of them did it without thinking of themselves, just automatically went to rescue those who needed them. Could you be a hero? Do you think it's automatic for us to help when someone needs us?

Dear Jillhill, By natural instict good people would go to help people those who were distress. When they go for help they never consider by helping people that they would be called heros. They want to help, they would help. About 30 years before, when I was young, due breach of embankment, our villages were flooded. For continuously 3days day and night I, along with my friends, with a small manual boat rescued many people. We did it because those people needed to be saved and not for the sake of name and fame. One thing sure it gives the individual a great satisfaction when they extend helping hand to the distress people.
