In the wake of last weekend's tragic stage collapse at the Indiana State Fair, it's only natural to focus on those who lost their lives. The loss to their families is unimaginable and they deserve as much support as we can offer.
But as Indiana Governor Mitch Daniels noted, this was not just a tale of tragedy but one of heroism. He drove that point home when he said the most lasting memory he'll have from the event is the bravery of hundreds of average citizens who rushed toward the scene of the collapse – not away -- to help in any way they could. "There was a hero every ten feet," he said.
And while far less devastating in terms of human suffering, the recent windstorm here in Louisville offered similar examples of admirable behavior in its aftermath. Just minutes after the last gust, people in affected neighborhoods everywhere were out in force, helping clear streets and driveways, while others directed traffic around downed power lines for hours until the authorities could take over.
Too often, the news is about people who lack character and act wrongly. But rather than focusing on troublemakers, these stories are about people who – given the opportunity -- prefer to fix things and make things right.
By their actions, they define all that's good about human beings. And they deserve to be celebrated.
