A friend of mine got bit by a hornet. She is OK and recovering nicely from the bite. It reminded me of when I was about 12. My friend and his brother and I went for a walk in the woods. His brother stepped in a hornets nest. Not knowing what to do we let him follow us at 10 or 12 arms length away so the hornets around him would not get us. We walked a few blocks and finally got him home. Opened the door to his kitchen then pushed him in. We called his mother and she was confronted with a son with hornets on him and in his shirt. She screamed. He screamed. We screamed. The hornets screamed and flew all around the kitchen. We felt like hero's we got him, Jimmy, home safely. His mother never saw it that way but she recovered, Jimmy recovered and the hornets flew out the window she opened. Have you ever done a heroic thing for your friends?
