Mr. Pociask, I don't know you other than what I have read today in the Poughkeepsie Journal. But saving those children's lives, at the possible expense of your own, is a heroic action that must not go unacknowledged. It gives me great hope to hear of strangers coming to the rescue of strangers. The courage you displayed and the daily courageous actions of all in our community who serve locally and abroad as soldiers, sailors, airmen, police, fire and emergency responders is too often taken for granted by those of us not directly affected by the event or emergency.
Thank you.
