We are surrounded by heroes. Everyday and extraordinary. Let’s consider the latter, since they stand out more.
Since the events of early in this 21st century, we have come to finally appreciate to the fullest extent those who place their lives and the future of their families on the line each time they head out to work. Military personnel, firefighters, police officers, emergency medical technicians… all never know what their day may bring as they don their uniforms and bid goodbye to their loved ones. And while it is easy to overuse the term ‘hero’, I think it applies to those who face danger and fear and overcome it regularly.

Thanks to getting Media Credentials, I recently had the opportunity to mosey around the Bellerive Country Club as it hosted the 74th Annual Senior Professional Golfers Association Championship. As expected the course itself and the grounds in general were “quite lovely”, to use one of the participant golfer’s from the British Isles phrase.
