I loved the news story “‘Heroes' documentary tells tale of Clairton officer, others” and the message it told. It made the fact that people care about our own people known to the public. I personally had no idea about the documentary “Heroes Behind the Badge: Sacrifice & Survival,” but I'm glad to know there are people out there bringing these facts to the public.

It's touching to hear how many people came out to support a local family in need and how many people just wanted to hear the story of James Kuzak, the Clairton police officer paralyzed on duty by a gunshot. It also amazes me that he can still have so much courage to keep living his life like normal.

I just hope more people can be made aware of stories like this and more support can be given to these heroes.
