We remember the heroes of 9-11-01 and all others who "do what's right" not what's comfortable....

Unsung Heroes
they're everywhere around us
doing most heroic things
like staying in a loveless marriage
when they could just spread their wings
maybe caring for a sick parent
or a child too ill to speak
not seeking any credit
just doing the next thing
not requesting recognition
or anyone's applause
they're too busy being heroes
and helping just because
the sports stars making millions
while playing games these days
and self-absorbed celebrities
most often steal their praise
but unsung heroes just don't care
they're too busy . . . being brave
