...you know who you are, right?
"we look at athletes, celebrities, and rock stars today and wonder why there are no heroes anymore. We are just looking in the wrong places. You'll hardly find heroes in locker rooms or stadiums, or on movie sets.
the real heroes in the world are all around us. They are everyday people who respond selflessly for others and beyond our wildest expectations. Then there are the others who are inherently beautiful and brave because of their indomitable spirit. They are people who do their job everyday, day after day, despite a deck stacked against them that is both cruel and unfair. They transcend illness and imperfection by their very existence and reveal the true meaning of the word hero. They show us the value and worth of life."
written and read by the husband of a true hero at her funeral.
