We just finished watching a movie on Terry Fox. What an amazing human being. Indeed, he was and still is a hero for many people.
With courage, determination, and the will to make sacrifices for others he accomplished a lot. His legacy is very much alive and well today.
Who today can be said to be a hero? One who will leave such an indelible mark upon the psyche of humanity?
I think that those who have given themselves in the service of their country and its citizens are. Whether in the military, reserves, police force, or fire fighters. To me, these people are very much deserving a thank you and most especially our prayers.
Suggestion: next time you are in a restaurant or coffee shop and see some of those who risk their lives for us, buy them their meal if you can afford it. Do it anonymously, or do it with a thank you. However you do it, give them a gift. They may one day save your life, or even give their life to save it.
