Officer Hero and . . . You
I've talked about this before. How we can all be heros. You've probably all read the story of the NYC policeman and the hero he became to a homeless man with no shoes on a cold cold night.
Truly an inspiring story. But the most wonderful thing about this story is that Officer Hero did this wonderful thing simply from a pure heart, not because he knew he'd become an instant "star." He didn't stop to think who was watching. And now fame is his, and his heroic act is known by millions and he has inspired us all.
I think of all of you. You, who do good deeds everyday, without the lens pointing at you. You, who are kind and compassionate simply because that's the way you live your life. You, who are kind without thought of your kindnesses being brought to the attention of the world through Facebook. You, who understand that we are all in this together. You, who knows that none is better than the other. I hope to cross your path everyday of my life.
Thank you, Officer Hero - - you truly are a hero and everyone knows it. And you inspire us.
Thank you - - yes, YOU! - - you truly are a hero, even though nobody knows it but the one you help. You inspire me!
