For the last couple of years, during the school year, Curt has had my back. Rain, shine, horribly cold conditions, it doesn't matter -- he stands guard at a busy intersection and watches over 8 to 10 kids who use that route on the way to and on the way home from the school which is a half mile away. I've written about him before.
We wave at each other every day, chat for a minute or two when we get the chance. He always hits the button for me so that I get the signal as soon as I roll up. He doesn't get paid much, if anything, to be there day after day ... but when I asked him why he does, he said he worries about the kids. Curt is one of my heros.
