When we think of courageous people, most of us think of soldiers, firefighters,fire_rescue-716064 police officers, and other first responders. Some people think of Martin Luther King Jr., Rosa Parks, Gandhi, and Mother Theresa.  Others, think of  little boys that save someone from harm or strangers that rescue people they do not know.  Some even think of courageous animals that rush into harms way.

Blog photos uploadedAll of these are examples of courage. People putting themselves in harm’s way for the sake of others.  There are large and small courageous acts. There are public and not so public ones.  There are courageous acts you may have never even considered.

In the coming days we will look at many different acts of courage.  Hopefully they will cheer us, inspire us, and maybe even change us a little.

I honor you, Hero, for you do not play to the crowd.
You play to your own soul.
An audience of one fills the house with its appreciation and applause.
Others follow you, and may attempt to emulate you,
but that is not why you are a hero.
Fame may smile upon you, or it may not.
The world may cheer your name, or you may be the unknown warrior
who rescued comrades in battle,
or taught a young girl how to shed tears of joy.
Whatever you did, you did not do for fame.
If you had, you would not be a Hero.
You are a Hero for your bold courageous inspired action.
– Jonathan Lockwood Huie

With gratitude, for the courageous men and women that protect us, and our freedom.          Leslie Rose K

    This was a beautiful post Leslie! Hero come in all shapes and sizes. They don’t consider themselves a hero, they don’t want any fame or recognition for what they have done. I see a Hero in my son who is a soldier, I see a Hero in a person who is dying from cancer, I see a Hero when someone does something to help other people out. I see Heroes everywhere. All we have to do is just look. Thanks for this uplifting post Leslie!
