You have read and probably even seen so much about Alyson Myatt, the young woman who saved the little boy from the fire last week.
She rushed through the flames barefoot in one of those rare acts of heroism that all of us wonder if we have within us.
The world is filled with unsung heroes – you probably know many of them – but there are few whose deeds are so bold, so brave and so remarkably pure of heart.
Ms. Myatt deserves not only the praise and gratification of the little boy she saved and his family, but she deserves all the accolades and support we as a community can provide.
For in her rare deed, she not only shined a bright light of wonder on herself, but she also made Shelby County just a little bit more special to the world.
