When Hurricane Harvey came ashore Friday, it was the most powerful hurricane to make Texas in 50 times — and it’s not over yet .

Over the weekend, everyone from members of the National Guard to strong-willed mommies on boats came together to rescue people trapped in their homes and cars. Most of this kind of labor won’t be captured on camera — catastrophic flooding isn’t exactly the best environ for selfies — but fortunately some photos of their gallantry were taken and shared.

Here are just a few of the everyday folks who’ve been busy helping carry the nation’s grandparents, sweet kids, and otherwise vulnerable people to safety.
