Our everyday hero's are all around us. They may not be in a baseball uniform or look like a fireman. They are our fathers, sons, mothers and daughters around us. God Bless.

I couldn't agree more. This young man stepped up and helped as many people as he could because it was the right thing to do, not because he thought he would get rewarded or be on the next reality show. Thanks Matthew!

Unselfish acts make for heroes and Matthew is indeed a hero.

As a police officer and as someone who immediately responded to the scene, I can say that Matthew helped save lives. But in regards to a previous comment about being an everyday hero, Every Fireman, Policeman and Paramedic out there is a Father, Son, Daughter and a Mother to someone. Were not superheroes with special powers were just people like you.

My son ran around with Matt and graduated from Columbia Heights High School with him. I'm positive that the farthest thing from his mind that day was being called a hero. He's a great all-around kid (the kind we could use alot more of) and I believe God put him on that bridge for a reason. Thanks. Matt!!!
