Heroes & History

Heroes & History

For various reasons I have had the premise of heroes on my mind lately. How the past informs the future. How the present is a test for those who want better for all, not just a few. I did not grow up with the idea of hero worshipping. There were very few, if any, put on a pedestal in my house when I was a child. I was given the liberty to come to my own conclusions. All these ideas have been in my head the last few weeks. Just checking as I often do with what got me to this place and time. As I read a recent article by a childhood classmate I was reminded how paths cross and diverge over time, but we still leave marks on each other. I highly doubt she has thought of me in nearly 30 years, but I was reminded of the time our paths were more closely bound, how we were all together for a short time, and she made me think of those around me today and how much I need to appreciate where we are. —Dominick
