Larry Skopnik was in a shop when another man wanted to steal money from the shop. The man didn’t care much about Larry because Larry is in a wheelchair.

When the man started to attack the shop assistant, Larry came to help her very fast and tried to take the man down. He did it and other people came to help too. Then the shop assistant called the police.

Larry is in a wheelchair for 10 years. He says, “I saw the man who came to the shop assistant and he started to take money. It wasn’t OK for me. So I decided to end that situation.

I am in a wheelchair. I cannot stand up but I can do the right thing. It is good to do the right thing.”

Larry is a good man. He doesn’t want to be a hero but he is a hero for everybody who comes to the shop.
