Good people, doing good things, every day.

Since Jones was 5 years old, he has never forgotten the name of Officer James Poole.
“Do you remember me?” Jones asked Poole.
Poole shook Jones’ hand and looked at him politely, but didn’t recognize him. Jones quickly refreshed his memory.
“About 1997, you pulled a 5-year-old out of a swimming pool, saved his life,” Jones said.
The realization washed over Poole, who stood up and wrapped his arms around Jones, now a 24-year-old man who nearly drowned those many years ago.

  1. We need more of them, or at least to hear about the ones we have. Much respect, officer Poole.
