Daniel Hernandez Jr., The Non-Hero Hero

Speaking yesterday at the memorial service for the six people lost during the Safeway shooting rampage on Saturday, Daniel Hernandez Jr., who helped save the life of Rep. Gabrielle Giffords, continues to reject to label of “hero” when there are folks like “public servants, and the first responders, and the people who made sure they have dedicated their life to taking care of others.” Moreover, adds Hernandez, “what defines us is not the differences, it is that we all together, we are all a family, we are all Americans.”
