Who are our heroes?
A hero is someone who gives of themselves, often putting their own life at great risk, for the greater good of others. The most heroic are often the most ordinary of people doing ordinary things for a greater humane purpose.
2020 has been a difficult year for everyone. We have seen many heroes come forward as the "essential" workers keeping our country going amid the COVID-19 pandemic. We will always honor our active military and veterans but especially this year we would also like to recognize our "essential" workers. The list is long and includes truckers, grocery store workers, first responders and many women and men who exposed themselves to health dangers in order to protect their fellow Americans. We are all in this fight together, and the United States Flag symbolizes our unity as a people.
