Quick Hits: The He Died a Hero Edition

Kivlenieks 'died a hero,' Blue Jackets teammate says at memorial
"He saved my (unborn) son. He saved my wife and he saved me," Merzlikins said. "He saved many lives. … If that wouldn't have been me, my wife or son, it would've been 50 other people. He died a hero. And that's not me saying it. That was the doctor saying it. If he would just sit, it wouldn't have happened. … I just wanted to let you know that he was a hero. He saved a lot of lives."

For today, I’m not going to add in any other stories because I feel this one should stand alone.

I’m certainly not going to say that people can’t talk about other stories, as in any other day’s Quick Hits article. Please feel free to do so.

Take care of yourself and each other, make good choices, and cherish the time we have on this earth.
