While waiting at the clinic this week I couldn’t help but hear about how brave many think that Ellen Degeneres is. She may be bold, smart, talented and beautiful (not to mention very rich) but brave? Here are just a few who seem brave to me: please feel free to add someone you feel is truly brave.
The doctors and nurses who risked and in some cases gave their lives during the Ebola crisis in West Africa: Our brave men and women of the armed forces who face dangerous situations daily to protect our nation and innocent people in many places around the world: the firefighters who rush into nursing homes to rescue helpless residents or the police officers getting shot at just answering another call of domestic abuse. Yes these ordinary people are the real heroes and heroines. The bravest person who ever lived did not have a Facebook page a Twitter feed or even many faithful followers. He simply gave His life without fanfare or praise. I am so glad He did!
