ACK - whenever you post about that book I keep thinking... I've GOT to read it. Then I forget again. I will go look for it and get it this weekend though. LOL.

Bou, it is one of the books that stays with you, and a favorite of mine as well. Thanks for reminding me - always good to gain perspective.

I thought the same thing when I read that story.

That is amazing. I am grateful for people such as him, namely because a former teacher and still very good friend of mine lost consciousness once and fell onto the track.

Some anonymous hero jumped down onto the trackbed and rescued her, and I was thrilled the next time to have seen her, that she was alive and looked so vibrant.

I am always terrified -- especially now that I am a daily rails commuter (long story) -- of that happening to me.
