Slowdown Saturday Free Writing Prompt
As I watch the Global Citizen event on television, I can't help but think about how subdued the
musical acts sounds. I remember how rich and full the post-9/11 television event sounded, even though the acts had to be whisked away to secret studios to perform.

I believe it was Theodore Roosevelt that said, "Talk softly, but carry a big stick." That reminds me that some of the biggest heroes are the people that just go about their business quietly. No fanfare. No big crowds. Just a job to do and someone getting it done.
Who do you know that is a quiet hero? What are they doing and what can you do to say thank you? Are you a quiet hero? What are you considering doing to quietly support your neighbors, friends and family?
