The following was in my email inbox this morning with my weekly Ripples, and I am compelled to share.
Our planet is filled with heroes, young and old, rich and poor, man, woman of different colors, shapes and sizes. We are one great tapestry. Each person has a hidden hero within, you just have to look inside you and search for it in your heart, and be the hero to the next one in need. The hero in you is waiting to be unleashed. Serve, serve well, serve others above yourself and be happy to serve...you are the change that you dream, as I am the change that I dream, and collectively we are the change that this world needs to be. -Efren Peñaflorida, 2009 CNN Hero of the Year
So much in this speaks so to me. Rather than pontificate myself, I'll let the words stand alone, and hopefully speak to you too.
