Everyday Heroes

Who (and what) are they?

As a society, we seem to never tire of the endless stream of superhero books and movies. From Batman, Captain America, and Superman to Wonder Woman, Spiderman, and even the Powerpuff Girls, we crave these stories of heroism. Stories of those who protect us. But those stories are works of fiction. Those aren’t “real” everyday heroes.

Fortunately, real everyday heroes walk among us! Only, they don’t wear capes.

We often think of these everyday heroes as those who risk their lives for us…military, police, firefighters, health care, and other occupations to name a few.

But there are countless other unsung heroes among us. For instance,

  • The farmers who feed us.
  • The stay-at-home moms and dads, along with caring teachers, who nurture the future.
  • The veterinarians who save our loved ones.
  • And the garbage collectors, utility workers, scientists, contractors, plumbers, truckers, and workers who tirelessly stock our grocery and retail shelves.

Real everyday heroes seldom perform acts that make the national news. But their acts of kindness, skill, and bravery can enrich your life immeasurably.

Sometimes these heroic acts are as simple as sharing a warm, caring smile or act of kindness, just when it is needed most. In those moments, the person who shares that is a hero in someone’s life. Perhaps, yours.

This page is about celebrating all the unsung #everydayheroes in our lives.

The people who have brought you joy, comfort, convenience, safety, security, food, shelter, and everything you’ve needed to enjoy this wonderful gift of life. Let them and the world know the positive impact they’ve had, and let’s make the world a kinder, more naturally grateful one.
