    This was posted above but reading this article, his quotes, the thought of this story playing out man it makes me feel great knowing that humans can still be heroes when needed.
    It also pisses me off though reading that others, say some pretty stupid things not thinking of the fact that real ass people are living through this hell and fighting literally to stay alive.

    I keep coming back to this story as it's just so real. I hope his trauma passes and he can sleep well and come back on here to say hello.
    Such motivation to be better.

    I was happy to see this today. That guy and his family deserve all of it. Makes it a little extra special being Thanksgiving week as well.

    This story is what got me looking at Toyota, after being a big three lifer. Both my lady and want to support a company that supports folks like this... our new Tundra purchase is underway.

    Huge thumbs up Toyota and obviously to Panda, and the dozer driver (would love to learn more about that part of the story).
