My Hero

There are heroes within every stride.

As I walk to work I cross the path of a snail working his way slowly across the pavement; a stone wending his way (with a little help from a quick-step-and-side-kick) back to his companions on the driveway after a night out on the tiles; and a leaf in the process of transforming itself into sustenance for the next generation of trees.

Heroes one and all.

As we go through our lives with, what we imagine are, our petty concerns, we should think of what goes on beneath our very feet. The world is full of wonder. Each part of our world is in the middle of an intense transformation.

And we too are part of this world. We too are as important as every other part. We are all in this together.

So remember this: you are strong. You are going places. You are my hero.
