Inspiring

I read this yesterday, and although it made me cry, I also found it so inspiring and wanted to share it.

The radio clip here is especially worth listening to:

(other links for support for the bereaved - if they have lost someone through drowning - can be found here: http://nasbla.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageID=3409)

It made me look at an old schoolfriend - Mark - in a whole different light because he is a search and rescue helicopter pilot. A quiet hero indeed.
