Who are the every day heroes in your life?

"No man is an island." is a quote that reveals the reality that we need each other to be able to live. I am not saying to be independent but to have a an easier way of living. In our every day living, there are people we meet in odd situations and they lighten our day. In my life, I always value these people and I call them "my every day heroes" because without asking them or paying them to help me in many ways, they just pop up. I live and work in a school, if there is someone who would open the door for me, I am already very grateful because at least I didn't have to stretch my arms and pull the handle and try to balance myself, the books and other things for me to get into a classroom. I am already grateful if my students who picked up their litter even without commands because that will lessen the load of my assistant. Anyway, I have a a lot of little of things that I am grateful of. But to cut the story short, these simple acts of kindness means a lot not just to me because it lightens one's life. Because of these, I am not so tired and I still have time to do mylotting. and of course I have time for my family and friends. Some call them angels, but I call them heroes because they sacrifice a little of what they have for others. Being a hero doesn't have to die from fighting for something. Heroes can be the people who save you from being too tired from work. To all my every day heroes "Thank you." Have a great day!

I think you are an everyday hero because you appreciate the kindnesses of others. Many people are so involved in their own life that they do not take time to appreciate the small acts of their associates and friends. Its people like you who appreciate their fellow men that go out and perform these acts of kindness. I hope you always remain as grateful and considerate as you are today. Thank you for being an every day hero, and for reminding us all to appreciate the people in our communities and lives.

Thank you! It feels great to be able to extend a hand. It saves life to be able to say something good to people. It saves a day to return a smile. It doesn't harm any thing if you are kind. It doesn't hurt people if you appreciate them for being good, it uplifts them. We don't loose anything if we lend a shoulder for people to cry on. Thank you for sharing and my hero. You are an every day hero too. Happy every day!

Hmm, let's see... ALL firefighters for a kick-off and others whose jobs put them in danger to protect the rest of us. My mum, who, like many of her generation, has not had an easy life but at the age of 79 is still always there with both emotional and practical support; my sons who are both caring, sensitive and strong young men who offer support to others; my colleague Wendy who is always cheerful and sympathetic to the needs of others no matter what is going on in her own life; my consultant and specialist nurse for putting up with my constant questions and offering me the best health care and all the people who return my smile.

For me it is my pet dog Preiti. She will alert us whenever she spots a reptile in the garden apart from alerting if anyone is at the gate. She will not go near the reptile but alert us by giving a particular bark. For me she is a hero.

That is so great. She is a life saver then. These warnings are very important so I am happy that there is someone that gives you warnings when these things are in sight. Thanks for sharing!
