The Lives of Heroes
The lives of heroes can inspire us to great actions and keep us from petty ones. They can stifle our whining and expand our discretion. These may not be the heroes known to all of us. Just as powerful a lesson can be drawn from the individual battling a severe disability, parents facing unimaginable challenges, and co-workers who climb mountains every day.
In the past year, I've seen so-called "everyday heroes" who have left me stunned by their courage.
They make me ashamed of my complaints.
