Please help me sort my messy soul.

      I am supposed to be writing an article about what it means to be a hero.
    After news of the horrific tragedy in Newton, I feel overwhelmed with material and emotions. Somehow I need to sort out all of what I’ve observed and felt into a 1000 word article. Please share your thoughts with me:

What does it mean to be a hero? 

And some quotes to get your brain juices moving:

“Great heroes need great sorrows and burdens, or half their greatness goes unnoticed. It is all part of the fairy tale.”
― Peter S. BeagleThe Last Unicorn


“Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me. ”
― Fred Rogers


“My own heroes are the dreamers, those men and women who tried to make the world a better place than when they found it, whether in small ways or great ones. Some succeeded, some failed, most had mixed results… but it is the effort that’s heroic, as I see it. Win or lose, I admire those who fight the good fight.”
― George R.R. Martin


“Heroes may not be braver than anyone else. They’re just braver 5 minutes longer.”
― Ronald Reagan


“All heroes are shadows of Christ”
― John PiperDon’t Waste Your Life


“I am of certain convinced that the greatest heroes are those who do their duty in the daily grind of domestic affairs whilst the world whirls as a maddening dreidel.”
― Florence Nightingale

I'm Susanna, a 20-year-old Christian girl incorrigibly addicted spontaneous adventures. My first dream was to become a pioneer. Unfortunately, I was born a couple centuries late, so I've decided to read, cook, run, and travel the world until my time machine is finished. You'll mostly likely find me getting into trouble and/or eating licorice. I am currently blogging the misadventures of a middle-school teacher in training. Come join me on my quest to become the next Ms. Frizzle!
