November 8 Heroes
I was lucky when I was growing up – I had a lot of heroes. Not so much the superhero kind, but a healthy mix of family, teachers, coaches and mentors who took the time to share what they knew and eventually “save” me from whatever I’d gotten myself into after stubbornly ignoring them.
A hero to me then was someone that was generally around every day but stepped in at just the right minute to help – and that got me thinking about our world today.
Who are our children’s heroes? Standards aside e.g. [insert list of pop culture names here] – what about Google? Apple? Facebook? Are they the new superheroes?
Today I am thankful for a few personal heroes –
- people that say thank you.
- the guy that broke out of his clique to help when I was trying to pry open a door with various extremities while muttering all sorts of .. well, let’s leave it at that.
- my enduring love – patient, kind and unmatched superhero powers.
How about you?
