Big thank you goes out to Al Hamnik for writing the column on true heroes.

The true heroes of today are the first responders, not the ones who play in sports. Athletes earn big bucks even when they do not play because of an injury and the doctor says he can go back to his sport but doesn't, because the athlete felt a twinge in his leg or when they throw a hissy fit if the team does not win.

The true heroes are the ones who go out in all sorts of weather and do not complain about how they feel but are concerned on the ones they are treating.

I commend Hamnik for writing this column.
