Samples

A few examples of what you’ll find in HeroicStories:

  • Call Me Grandpa -A retiree spends his time assisting grade-schoolers. Not until his memorial service did his family learn of the magnitude of the difference he made in the lives of others.
  • Hurting Hands – A construction worker laments his painful winter-cracked hands until he sees a man delivering newspaper bundles… a man with no hands.
  • Marshmallows and White Hoods -Klansmen burn a cross in the yard of a Mississippi civil rights worker. She scares them off… then brings her children out to toast marshmallows over the burning cross.
  • Secondhand Sight – A driver’s headlights quit on the highway at night. Another driver slows, turns on his brights, lights her way for over an hour to her exit… then turns around to drive back to his original destination.
  • When We Woke – A grandmother remembers her childhood Christmas Eve in a home with no heat. On Christmas morning she found a tree, gifts for all the kids… even heat.

Note: HeroicStories aims to be a place of positive energy in what sometimes feels like an increasingly negative world. Our goal is to highlight good things done by good people that make the world a better place.

To that end your comments are not only welcome but encouraged. However, comments that simply find fault or otherwise complain about some aspect of a story will not be published. There's simply no need to find fault here - there are plenty of places on the internet for those discussions if you really feel the need to go negative.

Instead, look for the good. It really is everywhere.
