You want a real American hero ... a human treasure? How about Roger D. Craig ...
Forget Obama, forget Putin, forget stories about bicycle riders and horse riders ... the following is the chronicle of an ordinary man ... a real man ... whose name cannot be extolled or diminished by fellow human beings, but by Nature alone. And nature spoke in unmeasured tone, when it revealed itself in Roger D. Craig.
As Shakespeare once extended words in the voice of Marc Antony, speaking about Brutus who was the only conspirator who had acted honestly for the good of Rome, the following passage could also be used to describe other men acting honestly for the common good:
"This was the noblest Roman of them all. All the rest of the conspirators acted out of jealousy of great Caesar. Only he acted from honesty and for the general good. His life was gentle, and the elements mixed so well in him that Nature might stand up and say to all the world, “This was a man.” - ANTONY
Mr. Craig was such a man.
