Every single day heroism

In the past week, I have spent time with: someone bravely going through a painful divorce, someone recovering from a stroke, that someone's daughter who's taken the load on her shoulders, someone who's taken care of his father and family through the father's severe illness, and struggled to get ahead in academics (and succeeded in both), someone who's been swindled by family members, and is trying to bounce back, someone whose children may lose their vision, someone who is dealing with a spouse's cancer..and perhaps others whose secret trials and burdens I will never know.

Heroes? I walk among them.They are everywhere, my every single day heroes and heroines. Everyday bravery, that is silent, is the toughest bravery of all.
