As I got older, of course, I learned that super hero's like this were not real. I learned that a Hero was something totally different then I once thought. Hero's come in all forms, and most would never consider themselves hero's. I learned that you do not need "super power's" to become a hero, you just have to stand up when needed.
These days I know that there are hero's all around us. Average people who just do the right thing. I also know that although I may find someone to be a hero, someone else might not agree. Everyone has their own idea's of what a hero is, regardless of definition. Some forgo the hero title and just call them role models. Thus, taking away the idea of super human powers and just making the person someone you should learn from and strive to be like. Regardless to how you look at it, these people should be celebrated.
In the Activist world, there are so many people deserving of the title. From those that the world may know down to those that do so much work, but are not in the pubic eye. Today there are so many people that i look up to, for so many different reasons. I am surrounded by "Greats"! Their dedication and courage inspires me to be my best. Most of these people are there for me on a daily basis. They help lift me up when needed or are always there to just brainstorm with. I am blessed with the wisdom from the older generations and amazed by the determination of the younger ones. And although I know that none of them have super human powers, I sleep a little better at night, knowing these people are out there, fighting for our Earth.
I would like to take a minute to celebrate and honor these people. I want to Thank them for all they do and for just being there. I know that none of you look at yourselves as Hero's, but you are all on my list. Thank You!
