My heros

What is a hero? What action does one take to become a hero? Who are these heroes that you hear everyone talk about, but never see? The word hero is passed around too much these days. A hero is not a football player that scores the game-winning touchdown or the goaltender who saves his team from a loss. A hero is usually an ordinary person that did extraordinary things. A true hero is really never a hero at all; at least not in their own mind." -- Al Green, Biocritics Culture

Who are my heros?


Why?  Because they were willing to try.  Many have been noble, but not all.  Some have made tough choices and wondered if they'd ever survive.  Still others have dealt with disabilities beyond most peoples comprehension.  Some have complained bitterly while others never uttered a cross word - but each one has faced adversity, worked to learn life's lessons and continued to hope.  Most of them are amazing examples of God's love and true integrity.  

If you're not pictured here, don't be jealous or hurt.  The label of hero has been tossed around a lot in this world.  It shouldn't be awarded lightly.  Be thankful you haven't needed to draw upon the level of courage required and find comfort in the knowledge that you too could be a hero, if called upon.

And all because of the ultimate hero.  How grateful I am.
