I often ask children, “Besides our God and parents, who is your hero?” I relate to children my hero is a teacher. We can debate why a teacher is my hero. However, There are hundreds of heroes such as fire fighters, police officers, doctors, ambulance operators, nurses, veterans, etc. Some heroes prefer to be invisible. There are volunteers who perform numerous duties without pay and never complain or are never acknowledged. They do not ask for acknowledgement, they enjoy helping fellow citizens. There are a few individuals that foe some reason do not support veterans. But it is a limited few. A veteran is one who slept under rain, sand, jungles, enclosed quarters on a ship out at sea, at times hungry, at times lonely, at times losing a comrade, at times running or looking for cover under enemy fire, for low wages. An individual that has served or is serving guarantees our freedom, liberty, right or privilege that we often overlook or take for granted. I have witness people such as Alex Caballero, Juan Morales, Tony Martinez, Mary Lozano and many others too numerous to name that have an unselfish devotion to help a fellow citizen or veteran. Because volunteers are unselfish, kind and extend their selves beyond the duties they perform they merit acknowledgement from this observer. “Praise is like sunlight to the human spirit; we cannot flower and grow without it. Not saying thank you does so much damage.” (Author Unknown)
