  1. Very moving story, and well written. Thanks for the reminder of many thoughts and feelings from that day.

    Every day there are a thousand little heroic things that people do, like visiting someone in the hospital, or returning something valuable that you found on the ground to lost and found, or sharing a taxi, or making a stranger feel welcome in a group, or making sure someone feels loved when they don’t.

    And every once in a while, very rarely, there is a chance to do something heroic in the very largest sense. Bill, thanks for sharing your story of the circumstances you find yourself in on that day, and how you chose to react, and the effect of that – and clearly not done without cost to yourself.

    The best definition I ever heard the word “character” was phrased as a question, and here it is: “How do you tell the character of a man?” Answer: “You put him with other men, and see how he behaves.”

    Thanks for the lesson Bill, and to all the others who stepped up and did the Hard Thing when their name was called. I am Canadian. We are with you.
