They still went to work...

The Federal Government is mostly shut down because of Hurricane Sandy. This group of federal employees still went to the office.

Gave me goosebumps, these guys live on honor...

Asked if he was afraid of dying in an accident, Marco Simoncelli responded: "No. You live more for five minutes going fast on a bike like that, than other people do in all of their life." rip #58 ciao ciao bello

too bad honor, commitment, personal responsibility, and reverence of our history isn't infectious. The town they're standing in needs it to hit them like a plague.

To the OP, that is what America is lacking on. HONOR, PRIDE, COURAGE, DETERMINATION, AND RESPECT. I work for the Federal Goverment and i went to work everyday.

The photo is not from Sandy:

Despite the fact that it wasn't from Sandy, they were still out in some nasty weather. Goosebumps regardless of which day it actually happened.
