Remember The Heroes. Remember Chris Mintz.

There have been 296 shootings in the 274 days that have already elapsed this year (that's 22 more shootings than days), and still "we the people" have done nothing to improve the situation of lunatics with guns. Debates continue as to what will work to quell these horrendous killings, and most agree we don't know the answer, but the country has yet to attempt a single thing to alter this downward spiral to more fear, more panic and more terror. We spend a trillion dollars a year to prevent foreign terrorism, but have yet to pass a single law to try and prevent the bigger problem of domestic terrorism and gun violence. So, in these dark times, when we feel powerless to change the status quo, we wonder what we can do to help. The answer is to recognize the heroes. Recognize and thank the individuals who deserve the limelight, who did all they could to help and put the cowardly killers who claim our national attention in the dark. One of these heroes is Christ Mintz. A student at Umpqua Community College, an Army vet and a father to his six-year-old son, Tyrik.

Chris performed this selfless act on his son's sixth birthday, and when paramedics arrived, he could only say "It's my son's birthday" over and over again.
