Bumper

My younger son stopped by my house today. He said that yesterday evening, as he was driving on an interstate highway, he saw a large truck rear-end a car in front of him. The car spun in a circle, and then went over a steep bank.

My boys live near Binghamton, NY, and there has been quite a bit of snow recently. My boy called 911, then made his way down the bank to the car. It had snow up to the windows, and the doors wouldn't open. There was an elderly couple inside. He got the lady out through her window, carried her up the bank to safety, then went and carried the husband up, too. Then he got their dog.

While waiting for the police and ambulance, he cleared the bumper etc out of the highway. Cars continued to speed by, and a piece of metal got thrown near my boy's head.

My boy was here for over three hours today, before mentioning the incident.

There are some really good people in our world today.

15. Thank you.

It's funny ....I had gotten out some photos of him from when he was wee-little to show his girlfriend's daughters. The younger one was asking if he was a kid, because he is a student (SUNY-Binghamton; or a grown-up, because he has a job (social worker)? The questions of a five year old!

I know the bank that he carried these people up. And I know how unsettling auto wrecks are. Those people must have felt secure having this big, very strong young man assisting them.

Mighty proud of him.

38. Your post reminded me

of a meeting at the Long House at Onondaga years ago. An elder was saying that it was good to see more young folks returning to the traditional ways. I noticed that the people he was talking to were in their 60s. I'm sure he had known them when they were little children, and still considered them "kids." Age can be a funny thing that way -- a lot of it depends upon your state of mind, I suppose.

I hope your Aunt is doing well!

This young man is pretty big, at least compared to me. (He boxes amateur, at either cruiserweight or heavyweight. These days, there are lots of bigger young men.) So I might actually be more accurately called a "chunk" in my old age, and he's the new "block."

19. I have only told my wife about this.

A few years ago I came around a corner on a country road and saw a jeep overturned. There was a young girl trapped under the jeep with her head buried in the mud.

I got out to see what could be done and before I knew it there were 4-5 guys that had pulled over lifting the jeep up and pulling her out.

After the ambulance arrived everyone just drifted off including me.

There are a lot of silent hero's out there.

Good on your boy.

And I agree with you 100%. Ordinary people do extraordinary things. And sometimes it seems that, in part because they are quiet about it, that it goes unnoticed. And so the general public tends to hear more about the negative things, and that saturates the way we view society.

And walking in a high speed area for cars is scary as well. Once my sister's car broke down on the freeway and the two of us had to walk and carry her children and make our way off the on ramp to safety. It didn't help that it was pouring buckets.

Your son was so brave to assist them.

I'd say this is the best holiday gift you could have.

it was on I-88. There are a lot of sections that become hazardous in the winter months, as you know. And there are people who, for whatever reason, drive too fast for the conditions.

In this case, it sounded like the truck driver was going too fast, and not paying attention. It's lucky that no one died as a result.

I appreciate your kind words.

Not a plow in sight. I was creeping along, white knuckled praying for an exit when an SUV passed me driving like the road was clear. Three or four miles later and he had slid off and down a very steep embankment. Amazing there were no injuries. Awful road in bad weather. I think it was the spring of the following year when culverts washed out and two truckers died.

I'm thinking that you might remember my son from some photographs I posted in the past ..... mainly in the DU:Sports forum. And I think that you've spoken with his older brother. It's funny how two brothers can, in ways, be so different -- in this case, the older one is a peacenik musician, the other a hard-punching amateur boxer -- and in many other ways, be so similar. They both have character, and values. And that, as you note, makes all the difference between those who help others, even "strangers," and those who turn their backs.

(I stocked a new book shelf with Kennedy books last week. Couldn't fit all of them on it, but it's a pretty impressive collection. I hope that one day, you and I can pull up a couple chairs near it, and discuss them!)

72. The thought someone would toss a metal object at another human being...

...made my heart drop. As words show what fills the heart, action demonstrates what the spirit holds.

I remember well speaking with one of your sons. I also recall he posted on DU, I believe to keep us aware of your recovery from injury suffered in a fall at your home.

The stories you have shared about your children are excellent lessons. Through your active presence in their lives, you have helped shape good vessels in all your children. In return for the love invested in them, you are blessed to see how they help make this a better world. Like the universe itself, Character is no accident.

PS: It would be my great honor to sit with you and talk about books, the Kennedys, our nation and anything and everything. Some think 50 years ago is a long time. Those who remember those days know it was just yesterday. Sharing ideas, as much as harnessing a team of horses to plow the earth, can make tomorrow better.

34. Heroics are spontaneous. There is no conscious decisions.

Nature takes over. They are surprised that they were capable of such acts, but feel no need to brag about what they had little control over. They are totally in the moment.


Good parenting gives a child the self confidence to act without having to think. His actions are a good reflection on you.

75. Exactly.

In athletics, being totally in the moment is described as "being in the zone." An individual performs at a different level, both mentally and physically. It wasn't until the piece of metal zipped by his head that my boy saw what he was doing.

He'll be here today; I'll show him this thread; and he'll shake his head, and say I shouldn't have posted the OP. But he will be happy that the Old Man is so proud of him, and surprised by the wonderful response of the DU community.

That's quite a special young man! Was that on 88 or 81?

63. Bumper

When I saw the title, I thought you were going to make word play on Bummer by using Bumper.

You raised a Bumper Crop.

64. Your son is a true hero

and apparently a modest one at that. Congratulations on raising such a wonderful son. I am sure all your children are wonderful. Happy holidays to you and your family.

Sam
