Editorial: Unsung heroes

R-C Staff

You could put a price of more than $155,000 on the support offered by Carson Valley residents.

But you can’t, really, because it’s priceless.

The residents of this community should be proud of how they have rallied and supported the country in the wake of the Sept. 11 attacks. Sometimes, it’s easy to become complacent or bow out of yet another request to help those in need.

Instead, Carson Valley residents have come through in a big way.

The residents anonymously donated more than $155,000 to help the families of firefighters lost in the attacks on the World Trade Center. Church congregations, students and businesses have also collected donations, and people continue to express condolences and support for the victims. So much has happened, it’s difficult to document every good deed and recognize every contributor.

In the past two and a half weeks, thousands of unsung heroes have emerged. We’re proud to see Carson Valley is home to some of them.
