Letter from the Editor: Everyday Heroes

By Leslie Moore

Letter from the Editor

This month we have showcased several of our local heroes who spend their days serving others. I was humbled by meeting these women and started thinking about all of the people I come in contact with on a regular basis who serve others with so much joy. My favorite grocery store has employees who take the groceries to the car for you. They are not allowed to accept tips and even give me a coupon after they load up the car. This is their job, I know, but there is one man in particular who really enjoys his work and makes sure his customers leave with a smile on their face. He makes taking groceries to the car fun, if you can imagine! I encounter people like this everywhere, and I’m sure you do too. In spite of the tragedies our country is experiencing, in spite of the awful scenes played out on the news and your Facebook feed or Twitter stream, good, kind and loving people outnumber the bad by an overwhelming number. They open doors for the young mother who has her hands full or the man walking with a cane; they always offer a smile or a hello and are quick to offer help when needed. These are our everyday heroes. I believe we all have the choice to live as heroes, sharing our gifts as best we can. Kindness is not always easy, but it is always heroic.

True heroism… is not the urge to surpass all others at whatever cost, but the urge to serve others at whatever cost.
