A woman who kayaked around Lake Superior said something I will forever appreciate.
“Some of us,” she said, “do the grand gesture, the heroic trek. We kayak around Lake Superior or climb Mount Everest. But that is not the only heroic journey. Some of us get up every day and do what needs to be done. We care for families, make sure the work gets done, and are good people every day. One of those journeys is more likely than the other to be recognized. They are equally heroic.”
