In the wake of the deadly Oct. 1 shooting at the Route 91 Harvest music festival in Las Vegas, stories of individual sacrifice and bravery emerged everywhere: Strangers risked life and limb to aid the wounded; commandeered vehicles to rush them to the hospital; provided life-saving first aid; and, in some cases, shielded others from fire. One such story wasn’t a story at all, just a moving photograph: a man on the ground protecting a woman’s body with his own as the shooting continued around them.
Benjamin Franklin nailed it when he said, "Fatigue is the best pillow." True story, Benny. There's nothing like pushing your body so far past exhaustion that you'd willingly, even longingly, take a nap on a concrete slab.
