Police officer stops traffic for family of ducks

How much should we go out of our way to help other animals? For this Lakewood, Washington police officer, he literally stopped the traffic on the freeway to let a family of ducks cross safely. This video is not just a nice feel good moment, but it can also be a way to open up a discussion about what it means to be compassionate. And since the do-gooder in this case was a man, and a law enforcement officer at that, you can also discuss with your students different understandings behind the notion of masculinity.
