A Real Hero

A couple of weeks ago, I did a posting about James Kim. The guy was all over the news in just about all publications, being praised as a hero after getting his family stuck in the snow, then wondering off for help and dying in the woods. Look people, just because someone dies, does not make them a hero. You want to know what a hero is, it’s Wesley Autrey. He basically jumped on to subway tracks, covering a man with his body, to protect him while the subway went over them. That’s a freaken hero. Yet, our media has hardly reported the story. After searching, I did find one main stream news organization reporting the story, CNN. It wasn’t on the front page, like the James King story. I guess, someone doing something brave and living, isn’t as newsworthy as someone doing something stupid and dying.
