True public servants

Addition to the Better Future Files: Read this heartbreaking yet uplifting story by Press reporter Denise Rizzo, and then you'll know what public service really is.

The firefighters, police officers, city councilman and other volunteers who went to the aidof Angela and Leo Smith — whose money for a ramp to help Leo, who has Lou Gehrig's disease, was stolen by some lowlife while the couple was at the hospital — are true heros. Because that's how a town like Tracy gets better. One helping hand at a time.

In a world in which so much is going wrong, it's nice to know decency still rules many human hearts.

Hopefully, the selflessness of these volunteers is an inspiration to the rest of us. Good way to start the weekend.
