    I shed a few tears on this one, there is still hope out there, that young man is proof of it.

    My hats off to the young man and prayers to the troopers family. Its nice to see some kids still have respect and will offer with out being told or asked to.

    Mr. Snow you are fine young man and I hope other kids will strive to be like you. Thank you

    Yup. That's where the story of a great person can begin.

    Respect for those who tried to make the world a better place when you're young. Empathy for those who suffer when you're old enough. And, when you're older, a self-sacrificing drive to make the world a better place.

    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.
