Inspired by the tragedies in New Town and Boston let's honor those who run to the danger.

That's a great theme. It will be hard to pick just one.

Thanks. I so admire those who would risk their lives for another.

Also the entries need not be directly connected to Boston, New Town or any other specific catastrophe.

Re: ENTER: Real Life Heros AV Contest

Well, I found someone who I saw on TV yesterday. This is Natalie Stavas, a pediatric resident at Children's Hospital. She was running in the Marathon on Monday and was approaching the finish line when the bombs went off. Realizing what had happened, she ran toward the chaos, dodging police who were trying to get everybody out of danger, and triaged multiple people on the spot. She very likely saved a few lives by stabilizing the victims before the ambulances came to take them away.

Not every hero walks on 2 feet! Meet my friend Nijat, the Hero Rat. He detects landmines in Mozambique:



If you'd like to learn more about HeroRat training, have a look at a short Youtube clip: http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...&v=3IxU-MZ12VE
Adopt a mine detection or a TB detection rat at http://apopo.org for as little as 5 Euros/ 6$ a year

Maybe the military and police should train rats to find bombs.

That would work well in Boston. There's no end of recruits down at the wharfs.

For anyone looking for avs of their own to enter, any shots of firemen, policemen, soldiers, or anyone in public service, medicine, rescue, etc., would all make great examples.

Civil rights leaders, from MLK to that little girl in Pakistan, would also be good choices.
