The title of this post consists of some very wise words. Even though I'd never heard them put that way before, I've heard them all my life--from parents, from drill sergeants and from intelligent friends. I think that if you lived by these and the Golden Rule, you'd probably do just fine in life.
Sometimes, however, you're faced with a situation where doing what needs to be done is something far outside your experience. In 1942, Wheeler "Johnny" Lipes, a pharmacist's mate on board the USS Seadragon, a US Navy submarine operating in the South China Sea, had to step up and save a shipmate, performing a job far beyond his experience.
Therein lies a tale.
One day, perhaps soon, many of us will be called to step up. When that happens, remember Johnny Lipes.
