The Hero Inside Each of Us

Today's Service Boot Camp thought comes from Rachael of 
It's Our Life and Life is Good:

"I think deep down there is a desire in each of us to be a hero."  -Jamie Lawson

What does it mean to be a HERO?  I think Arhur Ashe said it best:
 "True heroism is remarkably sober, very undramatic.
It is not the urge to surpass all others 
at whatever cost,
but the urge to serve others at whatever cost."

The hero within all of us is a lot closer than we think. 

There are plenty of ways we can be heroes to family members, neighbors, and strangers on the street. Aside from rescuing someone from a burning building or freeing them from an evil villain, you can help a new neighbor move in, make dinner for a sick friend, open the door for someone as they enter the same store as you. Even a smile can "Save the Day'. Opportunities to serve are all around us, if we will just take a moment to look for them. 

Keep up the good work that you are doing in Service Boot Camp.  You are a hero, and not just on the inside!!
