Grace under pressure

Dear Editor:

I wanted to thank a friend for his kindness and bravery in personally stepping in to help defuse the situation at Owl Creek on Monday. For the sake of anonymity, I will not mention your name, but without your assistance, it could have ended much differently.

I am proud to know selfless individuals like yourself and am honored to call you “friend.”

John Hembel
