My hero ...

I spent part of my weekend on a film set in Atlanta, waiting until 5 a.m. to interview the star of the movie, who was just as tired as I was. Earlier, at 1 a.m., I had "lunch" with much of the crew, eating homemade mac and cheese.

My friend Beth Kujawski spent part of her weekend walking 60 miles through suburban Chicago on behalf of breast cancer awareness and prevention.

I am a writer. Beth, who is also a writer, happens to be a hero as well.

The word "hero" is something to be used carefully, especially on this particular day and date. But while Beth didn't run into a burning building, she did walk a long distance for the betterment of others and the world in general. That sounds like a hero, or at least a type of hero, to me.

At some point today or tomorrow, Beth will write her account of her weekend on her blog, which is bookmarked on the right. Be sure to read and pay close attention. You will be glad you did, trust me.

You overwhelm me, Dave. "Hero" is far too strong a word. But I so appreicate the sentiment. We can all be heroes every day. All we have to do is be kind to one another.
