A real life American Action Hero

Rambo on his way to fight imaginary villains

What does a real life hero look like. Here is a picture of one of my favorite TV hero's. I have watched Sylvester Stalone in the Rambo movies probably too many times to count. He sure looks ready for anything.

But what does a REAL life hero really look like? I think that it is somebody who just sees a need in the world, gets up and says, “Hey! I think I might be able to help with that.” They are just ordinary people who are as afraid of the unknown as we all are, but somehow, someway they rise above their fears. Like us, they sometimes wake up in the middle of the night sweating with fear, but still they rise up in the morning, have a cup of coffee and get on with what needs to be done.

A real life American hero

 

What does a REAL life hero look like? She looks like my 72 year old wife who after helping stop the spead of Ebola in Liberia, Africa ( she says she had a lot of help from MSF, Doctors Without Borders) is now off once again, this time to Sierra Leone to hopefully do the same. She says she is going to try to stop the spread of ebola there, so we don't have to worry about it here. This Is what the face of a REAL true American hero looks like, and I am once again proud to be able to support her in her quest, and I hope all of you can do the same?

You can read all about her work at my blog or go right to the source in her blog https://kimfedericisblog.wordpress.com

I know she would appreciate a thought or comment, a word of encouragement, or just a simple thank-you note as she begins her work of making the world just a little safer. She will be gone for the next two months. As I write this she is in the air on her way to Africa, and I couldn't be prouder to call her my friend.

But of course that's just my opinion!

  1. I’ll add a hearty “AMEN” to all the above. Every once in a while we have the opportunity to enjoy the company of an angel. We rarely are aware of this because they take human form to interact with us. I believe you have been living with an angel for some time. And I am certain that there are lots of people she has touched in the many places she has served that would agree with that.

  2. You are too much!!! The days of coats and scarves are gone as of this morning. I will work a bit on my blog since I am staying “home” for the rest of the day and there is no one I have to meet with. Just starting to meet my housemates.
