PITTSBURGH — Headlines tell stories of people with total disregard for the law, acting out in chilling violent rages and greed beyond comprehension. It can leave one with a feeling that human kindness and selfless tendencies have almost disappeared. Nothing could be further from the truth. It is imperative to balance out the horrible, the ridiculous, the immoral with the integrity and upstanding that surrounds us.

I want to relay my brush with real-life heroes after returning from a recent morning spent at the Allegheny County Courthouse.
