Red Friday - Heroism




Happy Red Friday....and a special thanks to those who have been participating in our little experiment to blog each Friday together! You're all awesome. :)

Today, we'd love to get inspired by pondering on what heroism is. What does it mean to you? What specific thing do you admire about our nation's heroes....is it their courage? Facing difficulties on your behalf? Leaving their families to protect families they've never met? To get you started, here's one dictionary's definition of hero:
  1. a person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his brave deeds and noble qualities.
  2. a person who, in the opinion of others, has heroic qualities or has performed a heroic act and is regarded as a model or ideal.
So what is it that you admire about our deployed heroes? Tell a long story, or make it short and sweet. Share a card if you'd like, too, of course! And drop a link into Mister Linky below, so we can all visit and see what you've written!

And don't forget to wear red today!

I'm not feeling at all well today so I just posted a simple Red Friday post. But I did want to be sure and get one on my blog.

I've had a number of people tell me that they're now wearing red on Fridays since I've started my my Red Friday posts. So I guess even my quiet little posts are making people think. I've also had a number of people show interest in OWH through the posts. I hope this will encourage others to post on Red Friday. My posts are very simple and I'm not always able to follow the suggested topic, but I guess they still touch hearts.
