People who know me well know I was a fan of David Bowie as a teenager and through college. I still like listening to many of his songs. One that comes to mind is “Heroes.”
We can be heroes to someone, can’t we? We can be heroes to our families, our friends, our clients, our employees. Even a small act of kindness may be seen as heroic to someone who really needs a kind word, a pat on the back, a hug or just a smile. As David Bowie says, “We can be heroes, just for one day.”
I just think that the idea of being a hero is so sorely needed today. And when we do find heroes like the first responders in different disaster situations — whether they’re hurricanes or tragic shootings — we salute them.
We should all be saluting heroes who are veterans. Let’s give our thanks to the people who fight for our country and our freedom.
