Anyone can be a hero!

    We tend to think of heroes as characters in comic strips, and movies, but anyone can be a hero!
Addie Rodriguez is a cheerleader at her school in a tough spot. Her squad was supposed to do a routine that involved their fathers. Her problem was that her dad is in the military, and could not make it.  Along came Matthew Garcia…

Notice that he had not exactly had a good day, after already having done a good deed that week (donating blood), a deed that may have cost him a slot in the state finals he went to see his mom who was watching the game at Addie’s school, where he saw yet another opportunity to be a hero to someone. Few would blame a teenager for being a little self-absorbed in a moment like that, but no, he saw someone in need and did what he could do to save the day. For his actions, he deserves the title HERO!

I mentioned earlier that most people think of comic book characters when they think of heroes, some have a wider definition that includes the military, police officers, firefighters, but janitors can be heroes too.

Not everyone can save the world, but we all can change someone’s world!

“Tragedy is that our attention centers on what people are not, rather than on what they are and who they might become.” ~Brennan Manning

“Perhaps, if you weren’t so busy regarding my shortcomings, you’d find that I do possess redeeming qualities, discreet as they may be. I quietly carry the burdens of others as though they were my own. And I say ‘I’m sorry’ when you don’t. I am not without fault, but I am not without goodness either.” ~Richelle E. Goodrich

“To love a man enough to help him, you have to forfeit the warm, self-righteous glow that comes from judging.” ~Ron Hall
