Brave People

I am exceptionally fortunate to know countless inspiring, brave people who put their lives on the line to make this world a better place. I just had to write about a few of them.

We have many friends and family members in the military. They have all done brave things. Some have finished their military duty and chose jobs protecting us here in America. Some have brought home purple hearts, and still chose to re-enlist. Here’s a glimpse of one of the people we know:

Alongside these brave military people, we know people who go on mission trips. They go to help the homeless and hungry. They go to other countries to help them with visual and dental needs. They go to teach English. They go to help, wherever they are needed, no matter what kind of dangerous adversity they may face.

We know people who despite tremendous physical, mental, and emotional challenges manage to work their hardest to make a real positive difference everyday. We know people who became mentors, foster parents, and adoptive parents. We know people who donate to the Food shelf, Goodwill, Salvation Army, Women’s shelters, and many other places. We know people who volunteer their time at many different school, social service, and civic organizations.

Wow! How did I get so lucky to know so many great people?
