I know people who are heroes in my life. They are heroes in a different way than is typical.
No matter the situation that they find themselves in their words are the same. They reflect a person who is willing to bridle their frustrations and speak in a respectful way—all the time!
I hope that by the time my life is through that I will be a person like this.
One of these heroes is somebody I don’t even know that well. He works at the same place I do. Granted, I have never been in his home and I don’t interact with him in any other venue than work but for a lot of years I have watched him treat others how he would like to be treated and always kept himself in control. He speaks in a tone of gentleness. I admire that a great deal.
The power that comes from gentle words is incredible. I hope to be like one of my heroes.
