But as he was moseying along, he discovered that there had been a horrific car accident. The disoriented driver was screaming for help outside of the vehicle, and for good reason. The female passenger was trapped inside and fire was enveloping the Ford SUV. The fearless old gent decided that a stranger would die without help.
So many people nowadays are too afraid to intervene when someone is in peril. Some fear lawsuits or personal injury, others are apathetic, but in this instance none of those factors were in play and a life was saved. Sonny Trenholm doesn't consider himself a hero, and it's this humility that offers an explanation as to why he was the one person who didn't drive on by.
In a world full of pain, worry, and tragedy, it is heartwarming to know that one moment can change someone's world. You don't have to pull someone out of a burning vehicle to be a hero, but you must be heroic to do what Sonny Trenholm did this morning. Live the example.
