33. A Matter of Faith

"Among the tales of sorrow and of ruin that come down to us from the darkness of those days there are yet some in which amid weeping there is joy and under the shadow of death light that endures."
- J.R.R. Tolkien, The Silmarillion

Just wanted to say hats off to those out there risking life and limb to help those in need of help. Sometimes we can be so cynical when it comes to people seeking out help or indeed, those out there who are actually helping. Maybe we've become so jaded and distrusting of our fellow humans that we can hardly believe that not all things people do are for personal gain.

Like that old black dude I saw on CNN who still went on his ambulance rounds even though he lost contact with his family. The guy just like kept on going, even when he had to get through six feet of water. And till now, he doesn't even know what happened to his family. Now that's what I call a freaking hero man.

These kinda things always puts everything in perspective eh.
