Harmon: Anne Farley Epitomized Courage and Sacrifice

Anne Farley, the Westbrook woman who drowned at Old Orchard Beach Wednesday after saving her granddaughter, was the subject of M.D. Harmon's Press Herald column today:
I don't recall sitting at my desk with tears running down my face before, but
now the next time it happens won't be the first. Not because, as I said, I knew
Anne all that well, but because I was completely overwhelmed by her courage.
What she did represented the absolute best that we are capable of as human
beings, an act of utter heroism on the part of someone you would never think
would have the opportunity to show such luminous bravery.
- John C.L. Morgan
