My son's mother. She's a great woman and a fantastic mother. She's fought a running battle with cancer for almost two decades (most recently this winter, when she sent cervical cancer an eviction notice), and lives with passion, grace, and fire.

Who is your hero?
My grandmother. She felt the need to take in my mother and my uncle when their birth mother died. Though I have none of her blood in my veins, I am and will always be proud to call myself her grandson. She was the inspiration for my tattoo.

Yes, our Banjo. If nothing else but for giving cancer a kick in the nuts.

Yes, yes. Our Banjo. Heart

Mom's, you brought a tear to my eye.

Shakespeare's Comedy of Errors.... on Donald J. Trump:

He is deformed, crooked, old, and sere,
Ill-fac’d, worse bodied, shapeless every where;
Vicious, ungentle, foolish, blunt, unkind,
Stigmatical in making, worse in mind.

I am very humbled by this. I am also very grateful. Just be sure to remember I am not alone. I see so many others who also fight hard. And children and their distraught parents.

I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Blush

As above. Thank you very much.

People who overcome major obstacles in life with strength, dignity, grace and channel all of that into a way to put good out into the world. People who are brave enough to follow their own path and say fuck you to society.

Jenny is, like moms and others, a person who inspires me through their intelligence and ability to make others happy.

And mine.

My heroes? Well over the last couple of years my heroes have been people involved in the field of medicine.

Nurses for example. Such as our very own nurse.

While in hospital I went through a phase of heavy falls. 18 in total if I recall. During one such fall this tiny lass quite literally dived beneath me to avert my head from striking the floor. She put her own safety at risk in order to save me.

I am lucky enough to have witnessed these people working so very hard while being treated poorly, hold themselves together and show such patience that it is beyond me.

When I was in the ICU I was unable to do much for myself. Certainly too feeble to shower myself. I have had nurses shower me. Even going so far as to wash my privates while getting wet themselves.

My heroes are those whose spirit, whatever one wants to call it, is built on this type of kindness.

Again to my dear friends above. Thank you so very much. You too, have shown a level of kindness towards me when I have literally been insane while under the influence of heavy drugs that is above and beyond.

Many thanks to you all. Bowing

RE: Who is your hero?
My hero was my aunt (my dad's sister). She was a rock in the emotional storm that was my family. She was secular, smart, witty, kind and giving. Her and my uncle couldn't have kids so she kind of took my sister and me under her wing. I spent a lot of time with her, it probably save me from an early death.

She was a liberal in a consetvative family. She died of cancer when I was 14. I miss her every day. I can only hope that she would be proud of how I turned out. I think she would.

The only time I see a hero is when I look in the mirror! 'Hot Damn!' I say "that's me.'

On a very serious note, when this thread came up you were instantly the first and ONLY person who jumped to my mind that personified what a hero is.

You've looked death in the face and vowed to not go quietly. You've eloquently rebuffed the attempts of religious folk selling their brand of comfort. You're just all sorts of awesome!

It is I who feel humbled by you and I'm honored to consider you a friend. Heart


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Anyone who genuinely wants to help people, and not harm them.
