Sergio Consuegra is the guy who stood between Alexian Lien, his wife, and toddler and the angry biker mob over a week ago in New York. Consuegra was on his way to church when he witnessed the brutal attack upon Lien and his family. Since no one came to their rescue, Sergio felt compelled to do something as the angry mob turned their aggression toward Lien’s wife and small child. While Consuegra felt danger, his goal was to calm the situation. “That’s it, guys. Let it go. That’s it. Let it go,” he said as he created space between Lien and the bikers. The angry mob backed down and away. Consuegra took the initiative, defused the moment, and potentially saved lives.
Sergio Consuegra is this week’s hero. Why? He was willing to do the right thing even when it meant walking into harm’s way. Thank you Sergio Consuegra for risking and doing the right thing! Thank you for the example! You’re truly a good Samaritan.
