A hero


Víctor Perez didn't think twice
about following the truck that matched
the Amber Alert description on Tuesday afternoon.
He didn't think twice
about the fact that the "bad guy"
could be armed and he could be killed.
Víctor Perez just thought about the eight year old girl
that had been kidnapped
and like a real hero, he acted fast.





Víctor Perez will probably
not write a book,
or have a reality tv show,
or dance with the "stars",
he won't even be the new "American Idol".






But to me, Víctor Perez is a hero.





I couldn't find a picture of Víctor Perez to share with you,
but I really wanted you to know about him....
because
there are not too many Victor Perez's around my kids...
around your kids...

Only heroes like Víctor will risk it all,
in order to save a child,
in order to save the innocent.

We need a lot more Victors in this world!

Thank you for honoring this very brave hero!!

Real heros are sadly few and far in between. And those real heros that step forward against all odds to help an innocent child are very special indeed. Thank you Marcela for such a thought provoking post!

Take care, Sue

I so agree with you! We all need to be aware of what is going on around us...children need us to protect them and I am grateful for those heroes that take that step to do action.

My husband told me about this story. Thank goodness Victor did not worry about what may happen to him if he was chasing the wrong person. Thank goodness he did not thing, well someone else will catch the person. Thank goodness Victor acted with his heart.
