If yer looking for a hero, there are plenty out there. Look around. Someone is talking the time to make a difference. That's a hero. Some get paid to this. Some don't.

Heroes make the world a better place.

A post on FB this morning got me to thinking about heroes and the heroes I have met in my life.

All of them made a difference. Some did it in classic heroic style, risking their own life to save another. Some did it quietly, reaching out and turning a life around.

None of 'em did it for the credit, glory or fame that might come along with it. I say might, because plenty of them did their heroic deed and walked away before the spotlights showed up.

That FB post I saw made me think of someone who could be called a hero.


Mr. Rogers told us to get along. He told us to wonder. He told us to learn. He told us to be happy and look for good in everyone and everything.

He did say bad things would happen. He told us if leaned on our friends, they would help us get through it.

Lotta people will say Mr. Rogers was a hero. I don't.

Mr. Rogers does not fit the definition of a hero. He didn't have to.

Mr. Rogers inspired people to go out and save lives, make a difference and not worry about who got the credit.

Mr. Rogers created heros. That puts him a tier above heroes in my book.

  1. Yep that pretty much covers it. Fred Rogers taught us all that it was okay to be different and it was okay to be scared. He taught us that good people can make a difference. If anyone ever deserved the Nobel Prize, it is this gentle man.
