Daily Heroism

Every day, thousands of cops and firefighters perform an act of heroism. This action will not be mentioned in the news media, because it is not dramatic. It is, rather, a simple, routine act.
And what is this act of heroism? It is nothing more... or less...
than starting another day on the job.
