I live with a real-life hero. Of course he’ll tell you that he’s not. That he’s just someone doing his job. But I know better. Sure, he’s a structural and a wildland firefighter and he saves lives every day, but he’s a hero to me because he is, and has been for the last 30 years, the best father and husband imaginable.

But I’m not the only one who lives with a hero. Heroes surround all of us. There are some that do heroic things because of their line of work. They included nurses, doctors, teachers, police officers, military personnel (both active and retired), firefighters, and anyone else who steps in and steps up in time of crises.  They’re people WE seek out when we’re scare, sick, or frightened.

There are other heroes who do what’s right when the need arises and they step up without expecting anything in return. They create heroic moments every day when they stop a child from being harmed, lend a helping hand to someone in distress, or help those who’ve experienced loss pick up their lives again. It’s these little heroic moments every day that keeps me believing that there is good in the world.

I’m not the only one who has noticed that doing good things means good things for all of us. Murphy-Goode is a wine brand with a social conscious who’s partnered with Operation Homefront to raise money and awareness for the cause. Each year Murphy-Good creates a special blend wine to benefit the charity and then they donate .50 cents of every bottle sold during the campaign – their donation annually exceeds $300,000.
