My father was always doing great things! One time, he got a telephone call about a young man who was threatening to jump off of a building a few blocks away from our house. The man was a Vietnam veteran who felt he had nothing left to live for. My father immediately dropped what he was doing, drove to location, go out on the ledge with the young man, and talked him back inside the window. Soon, thereafter, my father found him an apartment and paid the rent until the vet coul find a decent job. Yes my father is a hero!
