There are "unsung heroes" in all our lives.

It is inspiring to hear or read about the grit, determination and courage of others when, for whatever reason, it is noticed and spotlighted. But, for every one we hear about, I think their are many others whose selfless actions will remain "unsung".

Someone you know is dealing with a serious illness or an unstable loved one or having to "do without" themself in order to feed their kids.

Someone pulled an injured person out of a burning car and then went on their way when the EMTs arrived.

Someone stepped between a white racist and an "other" and quietly stared them down.

And, someone who could barely dress herself with gnarled hands w0ent to work and typed all day to fund a child's tuition.

Bless 'em all.
