Little acts of kindness make life a lot more enjoyable; stories of the goodness found in others can also be a tonic when you're feeling down about the world around you. (And who doesn't feel that way from time-to-time?) From the website, "Our mission is to publish examples of people being good to each other, to inspire similar heroic actions in others." If you're looking for a little brightness in your day, you might consider subscribing to HeroicStories (an email subscription is free).
And I know many of you out there who've worn our nation's uniform have many a story of heroism to share with us; I highly recommend adding yours to the beautiful chorus at HeroicStories.
