Editorial: Calling All Heroes

When tragedies occur, it is the names of the perpetrators that stay in most people’s minds, but not the victims nor the heroes. Unfortunately, we can recall the names of the shooter in the Newtown tragedy, but how many of us know the names of the police officers who charged into the building to rescue the trapped children and educators? To those of you who can recall the terror that was wrought on the LIRR in Dec. 1993, you probably remember the name of the gunman, Colin Ferguson, but do you know the names of the individuals who subdued him and stopped him from taking even more innocent lives?

Maybe we can’t change this throughout the world, but we can help to change our corner of it. That’s why the Massapequan Observer is creating a new feature titled, “Local Hero.” We are asking you, our readers to submit stories of good deeds that have been performed right here in Massapequa. Perhaps it’s something simple, such as a good deed performed by a neighbor or an act of kindness done by a child. There is no good deed that is too small to be recognized. So, please, send your submissions to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . By accentuating the positive, maybe we can make the world better, and we can start right here in Massapequa.
