The newscasters were so emotional that they could hardly talk. My eyes filled with tears too. The body of Sargent Helus, a hero in the mass shooting in Thousand Oaks, California, was being transported by car on the Ventura Freeway. He had given his life trying to save the lives of others. As the procession passed by, everyone stopped in recognition of his ultimate sacrifice. The overpass bridges were crowded with people, as were the side streets; thousands gathered to honor him. We respectfully honor the heroes who freely and lovingly gave their lives.
