Every day is an unpredictable show for us. Nobody can predict what will come in our way. We cannot tell whether a group of people, who are having a peaceful picnic and selfies in a town's central park, could secure peace all throughout their stay. Who would have known if a test missile from an adjacent state might suddenly fall right there at their exact spot? Miles away, a tragic event might even occur simultaneously as an innocent day street sweeper is hit by a black-tinted Ferrari or an automatic car without any notifications. Scary right?
Amidst the paranoia and other weird lines of thought we can infer, there is this positive side of the coin that can save the day. There are some instances where one's tragedy is another's opportunity. A perfect example is this mix of story.
A school bus from Mary E Bryant Elementary School, carrying 27 young students on their primary education, is on a trip to drop students home.
In the middle of driving, the bus' brakes became non-functional. School bus driver lost his control. The only way left was to maneuver the vehicle to somewhere safer.
Out of control, and with the driver's maximum effort, the bus headed to a lake in Odessa.
The bus rolled and stopped in the shallow pond. Horribly, it's an Alligator pond! There is even a signage "Alligator Habitat: Do Not Feed, Do Not Harm." It sounds dangerous down there!
Upon knowing the incident, authorities and parents exerted effort to bring 27 children in safety. They're definitely heroes!
Sierra, a 10-year-old who is identified as a facilitator of students crossing school pedestrian, was one of the kids riding. He is not fond of being a hero, but given the circumstances, he boosted up his guts do be such.
He helped save the day by taking kids off of danger as much as he could.
Miraculously, nobody died from alligator attacks.
Oh! He's commended as a School Safety Patrol Member. You nailed it, Nicolas!
