The Wise County Messenger ran a wonderful article about the unselfish heroics of Garrett Self from Tioga and Jose Zuniga of Slidell (“Runner goes back on course to aid Slidell freshman,” Sept. 28, p. 8B).
These two young men showed, in my opinion, what America has always been built on. Jose Zuniga showed the strong effort to succeed, even though times were hard, and Garrett Self showed the caring it takes to help his fellow man to this successful conclusion.
Everyone should commend them and their example. What a breath of fresh air in a sometimes hostile, selfish and lazy world.
Outstanding article … well written – and most of all, terrific young athletes.
