Let me tell you a story.
I am the product of a broken home. While I won’t bore you with the details of my childhood, I will say that I lived with my mother and brothers on the borrowed floor of a family friend’s living room. One particularly horrible day, my mother was stranded on her way to a job interview, with three children and no money to fill up her car. A complete stranger handed my mother $20, and because of that my mother made it to her job interview.
That $20 helped my mother get her life back and be able to support her children.
The point of my story is: heroes do exist and you don’t need a cape to be one.
