"The simple joys of life will forever leave me speachless."
"Don't point your finger at crazy people!" - Girl Interrupted

What is a hero?
Do you imagine cape and some special ability?
Or a counselor talking a child out of suicide?

When you watch T.V. do you see animation?
Or poverty?
Heroes boasting of their accomplishments?
Or silently continuing with the their lives?

A teacher impacting a student?
A friend lending a shoulder?
A father supporting his family?
A complete stranger changing an other's life?


Red capes?
Damsel in distress?
Super Strength?

The simple things make a difference.
A hug.
A good grade.
Small acts of kindness.

Do we really need super powers?
Or just faith in humanity?

In my English class, I've been assigned to write about the heroes of the Holocaust and this poem was inspired by those brave men and women who risked their lives for complete strangers.
