JL's Columbia SC Real Estate Blog: You Wouldn't Know a Hero if They Walked up and Slapped You!!!!

You Wouldn't Know a Hero if They Walked up and Slapped You!!!!

 When you hear the word hero, what comes to mind?...........Athletes...........Musicians..........Movie stars........famous people.

Well, athletes are overpaid and overrated. Baseball is constantly marred by steroid abuse, football is just waited for the star player to land in jail, and basketball is doing pretty much the same. Nearly all of them whine and cry as if their life is so difficult.

Musicians and movie stars are just waiting for the end of the year so they can tally the list of overdoses. Chances are, you wouldn't really like any of your favorite actors and actresses if you actually met them. You just like they way they are in the movies, and the are not really like that, they're acting.

When I think of heros, it's the people you would least expect. It's the single mom or dad working two jobs trying to make ends meet and take care of their children. It's the everyday people who make this country run. They may not have a huge billboard with their name in lights, but they probably built it and put it there.

So, the next time you think of heros, think about the underlying people that make this world go round. They don't have to be famous or have cheering crowds. Our solders certainly don't get all the acclaim that they deserve, but instead of complaining about it, they defend our country. Remember what a hero really is before you use the term too loosely.

Nice post JL.  Far too many in our society go unnoticed and with very little reward but they do what needs to be done day in and day out.
