Courage and Initiative Carry the Day
When a terrorist started a fire on a recent Northwest flight from Amsterdam to Detroit, most passengers sat in shock, but Jasper Schuringa jumped over four intervening passengers, tackled the man, beat out the flames with his hands, and subdued him. We’re thankful he had the manly virtues of courage and initiative – he probably saved the lives of the 278 souls aboard. That’s what men are supposed to do – use their strength to protect the innocent and helpless. Good work, Mr. Schuringa!
