    I thank the CNN crew for their response and the way in which each person showed their empathy. Each one was a hero.

    Anderson Cooper showed great leadership and compassion.
    He was able to calm the tearful nurse, because of the situation she was in not being able to wash her hands, to prevent the spread of infection, for example;
    The assistance of getting the bleeding boy away from the brick throwing after he was hurt.
    I see a great emotional connection between him and the little boy who was pulled from under the rubble and he continued to follow him.

    Dr Sanja Gupta, He showed great strength and endurance to follow through , in finding medications for the twin doctors. He showed his professionalism by organizing his crew to care for the lonely hospital patients. Taking care of the head injury baby and many other helpful assistances.

    Chris Lawerence, he was the take charge guy with the food, crunch at the back of the truck and assisting to settle a dispute with the date on the package. He spread his time around even giving up his truck to transport a patient to get aide. I hope he was not disciplined.

    Gary Tuchman, You showed your fatherly skills holding the little orphan boy dressed in blue. You were sitting with him so gentle in the group photo.It was a very nice expression of caring.

    Carroll, I was very happy to see that you were able to connect with the suppose lost father. I am sure the family will never forget you.
    You looked hip wearing the sun glasses.

    Solomn Obrian, You touched my heart as a mother. The kids could not ask for a better nurse than you. Yes, I know you are not a nurse but you managed the roll of both jobs with compassion. I am sure your kids are proud of you. Thank you. God Bless you and your family.
