    Smile Long Island 5th grader saves classmate from choking.

    I thought this was a nice story to put here. His teacher said he reacted calmly and "cool as a cucumber".

    Cool as a cucumber.

    That's how Keith Johnson's fifth-grade teacher at Cherokee Street School described the 10-year-old, whose actions on Friday potentially saved the life of one of his classmates.

    "He's an incredible young man," said teacher Ryan Cavanagh.

    Keith was eating lunch with his classmates when he noticed another student choking.

    It's so great to read something positive! I think kids that do wonderful things should be recognized more often. He should be a guest on morning shows, Leno, make a really big deal..........

    What an exemplary young man. I am proud of him too.

    When I was young and bold and strong,
    The right was right, the wrong was wrong.
    With plume on high and flag unfurled,
    I rode away to right the world.
    But now Iím old - and good and bad,
    Are woven in a crazy plaid.
    I sit and say the world is so,
    And wise is s/he who lets it go.
