Not All Heroes Wear Capes

June 4, 2014
By KATHY BURCH , Post-Journal

On Friday, May 16th, I was reminded that not all heroes wear capes. These individuals can be right amongst us, and we would never know unless someone else spoke up for them. The Sheriff's deputy you just passed on the road teamed up with an off-duty EMT to save a woman from a burning car. A member of your local fire department has dedicated over 50 years of his life serving his community, responding to emergencies and helping his neighbors. Our coworker that you casually greet in passing during shift change every day saved another coworker by giving him CPR when he collapsed of a heart attack. The nice man you met while adopting your new pet from the Humane Society has done so much more for animals than you could possibly imagine. How about that young teenage boy who you think probably spends all his time texting his friends? He's really been in other countries with Habitat for Humanity building homes for families in dire need. Our heroes even come in the form of town supervisors, who do so much more out of the limelight to educate and make our communities a better place to live.
