...perhaps we should ask how much heroism was required to say, "Okay, everybody off the bus."
It's not like the bus came in at 120 mph, gear up, and skidded to a stop on it's belly before bursting into flames. The bus had a malfunction, the driver pulled over, the fire started growing, everyone left the bus.
I'm certainly glad that everyone got off safely, and I can appreciate the leadership role taken by those who immediately played a key part, but I don't see much "heroism" involved.
