It doesn’t take a hero or a college degree to be a good, decent person. I’ve met people who have done more harm than they could ever undo under the guise of decency and heroism. I’ve met people who haven’t stepped foot in any religious establishments nor gone to college who are more decent than kids calling themselves heroes all over the internet.
So here’s a standing ovation towards every person who has kindness without attention, does kindness without writing it into a book for remembrance later, and is kind to the hurt, harmed, and abused without getting anything back in return.
You are my heroes. All the rest of you writing yourselves into a book to look like a hero, please sit down. There’s no need for you. “You’re welcome.”
