“Instinct.”

5895e84eefceaf9bbad11fd2f62d0841

I’m no hero.

I acted upon instinct pulling Mrs. Harris from her car after she collided with the fence. Everyone says I’m a hero, but I don’t fell like one. I just did what I was supposed to do.

People call us heroes, but we know who we are.

We are men & women who know we only did what was right.

We keep the secret within knowing we could not save the others.

We live with that secret daily that family, friends, and others do not want to know what heroes think.

My instinct did not save Mr. Harris.
