When Ordinary People Become Heroes by Kristin Wallace

The theme this month on Romancing the Genres is “real life heroes”.  I think sometimes we use the term hero loosely. Sometimes we celebrate the wrong people. We elevate athletes and other celebrities, when real heroes are right in our communities. The teachers who inspire students to learn, the doctors and nurses who go to work every day and save lives, the single mothers, those battling cancer or other disease.

Sometimes heroes turn out to be people going about their day who are suddenly faced with a situation where they have to step up. Then there are the times when a group of strangers becomes the rescue team. I see videos coming across my Facebook feed all the time. I love these videos because they show that people will do the right thing, despite all the negative news stories out there. Whether they are rescuing a woman from a sinking car, a father jumping into a river after his daughter, or even a deaf man pulling a deer trapped in the ice to safety, real heroes are all around us. We just have to look for them. Here are a couple examples. 

Kristin Wallace is the USA Today Best Selling Author of inspirational and contemporary romance, and women’s fiction filled with “Love, Laughter and a Leap of Faith”. Her popular series include the Covington Falls Chronicles, inspirational romances set in a fictional Southern town, and Shellwater Key Tales, women’s fiction/romances set in Florida. Look for her latest release COMING HOME TO PARADISE later this month! For info on her books or how to connect, visit her website at Kristin Wallace Author

Awesome videos! Everyday hero's are the ones we rarely hear about. they are in every city and town and countryside! I wish the daily news would have more of these inspiring stories instead of all the shock news.
Great post!

Thank you for sharing. Kudos to our unsung heroes that are so deserving of recognition, and so rarely get it.
