|Antonio Diaz Chacom|
Antonio is a mechanic whose main language is Spanish and as he became the subject of a media blitz his wife had to translate his story to the reporters. Later reports indicated that he was an illegal alien in this country. Antonio indicated that while he was chasing the perpetrator he was thinking of his two little girls and would hope that others would do the same if it had happened to them.
He is a hero from my perspective for getting involved and protecting a little girl without concern for himself. He didn't think about reasons not to do the right thing but instead just did it. Thank God we still have people who will protect children, our most vulnerable members of society, even those children that are not their own.
