Who are our everyday heroes?
Themed “Everyday Heroes,” the 2nd Southeast Asia Video Festival for Children and the Youth is our chance to pay homage to the people who have performed heroic deeds – big or small – and who have made a lasting impression on us.
Who could they be?
Perhaps, the lineman who restores power in the aftermath of a devastating typhoon…
Or, the teacher who offers words of encouragement, enabling a struggling student to strive hard in school.
How about the preacher who inspires because of his words of wisdom?
And what about the medical professional who faces up to the challenges of cancer, AIDS, as well as mental and physical disabilities in his or her daily work routine?
Maybe the volunteer who serves the disabled in hospitals?
Perhaps, the couple who offer food to hungry street children…
Or, a friend who gave up a day’s work to help take care of your sick mother…
He or she could be the one who pushed your sister’s wheelchair, bringing her from one place to the next, or the child with a disability who assisted a fellow child with disability.
Indeed, the list of everyday heroes is endless.
Without fanfare and with no thought of acknowledgement or reward, our everyday heroes perform heroic deeds — actions that are in the service of others. These acts of kindness and servitude done by ordinary people may seem mundane but they definitely make our lives lighter and brighter amidst difficulties. What’s more, they bring hope and engender a positive outlook that radiates to our family, community and country.
Everyday heroes deserve to be appreciated, thanked, and respected. Their stories need to be told to enrich our lives.
Let us tell their stories through videos for the 2nd SEAVFC and spread the message of Love, Hope and Peace in Southeast Asia.
