OK, so starting my day out bawling again, you notice how the National Guard members work in unison to get the barricade down as well? Not a single
word, just working to free the area, they too caught my eye each time I see this clip. Funny how my first thought was about why they joined in so
fast, but you know when it is you or your beloved laying injured in a tragedy like this, it is the heroes who don't run from the explosion but jump
in to do everything they can in the moment to help and to save lives.
I did see Carlos yesterday, and a few others including the NG guys, and then noticed others who's instinct was to run, and there is no shame in
running either if that is what you instinctively feel to do, otherwise the area would have been impossible to clear and survivors to get to.
So I did not notice that you were the OP in this thread at first, but as soon as I began reading the dignified and heartfelt OP I looked over and saw
it was you.
I know these times are especially hard for you and your family, you guys may live out in the wild west, but you are true east coast guys at heart.
