For an example of that kind of heroism, watch the clip above. In it, North Carolina man Wallace Leatherwood is driving 40 miles from Weaverville to Waynesville, North Carolina with 3,000 bees in the cab of his truck.
He'd just bought 18,000 bees from Wild Mountain Bees in Weaverville, placed them in the back of the truck, and ran some errands. At some point, he took three boxes of bees from the bed of the truck and moved them into the cab, aka where he'd be sitting.
"I didn't have any shady place to sit them," Leatherwood told Memphis' WREG. "When I came out, [one of the boxes] was black with bees, and there were bees everywhere. I thought, well, I don't know what to do."
One option would have been to simply walk away, abandon the truck, and start a new life in a different state. Instead he opted to drive the truck anyway.
