  5. Kudos to all those who responded! Maybe the group leader could get the parents of those teens, to make a donation to help train other lifeguards

    • Thanks for your comment, it is a nice possibility. In the least it would be good for the many school age tourists traveling here to realize the true humanity of the “strange” people they will see all over this country. It should be an eyeopener for us all to to see that even a single qualified lifeguard can organize multi person rescue events.

  6. If someone saves your life, especially unpaid, imho you owe them a serious debt & should do what you can to care for them right back. If you’re a teen on a trip, lunch is good – but also get to know them! Keep in touch with them! Clearly the ‘saviors’ are ethically way above most people & are worth knowing. They definitely changed your life by making it LONGER. Maybe later when you & your new soul-to-soul friend get older & you’re more successful, you can do something important for THEM. Think how much richer our lives can be by accepting those who come into it in such a significant way.

    • Awesome of you to comment.Hopefully it’s not everyday you have to meet someone who saves your life. My intention is for everyone to realize for a at least a moment how helpless we all our to deeply thank every individual involved in our moment to moment well being. This may be a bus driver taking you to school, a polite taxi driver, or for that matter even the “bad” examples that let us choose to act differently. It’s gratifying for me to understand that humble campesino families are eventually the backbone behind practically any type of tourism in the world, which means we all can and do make a palpable difference in the world and its future. Awesome of you to comment.

      • Humility – this could be the keystone in all human relationships. Placing yourself above others by failing to acknowledge the roles they play in our very survival impoverishes everyone. If no one plants the corn, we starve. Someone must maintain the water supply. And protecting the lives of strangers is holy. Money doesn’t make a person better than someone else, it just tempts us to build a wall to keep others out.

  7. I was there and have been in the same situation as the kids in hermosa beach down the road. If those kids can just learn from the experience and pass it on or help someone else that is all they need to do. Of course be thankful but there isn’t any expected monetary value every associated with anyones life and it is the last thing you think of after your ass is grass in the ocean.
