Another “Ordinary” Hero

(Note 5th name down from top left of the image on the right.)

A casual glance might leave the impression of an ordinary senior citizen. But there is much more to every person than meets the eye, for we are the sum of what we are now and all that we have ever been. In Tom’s case he is also the descendant of Brothertown and Narragansett Indian Tribes, and the young man who served honorably under fire in Vietnam. So keep in mind, the next time you meet someone who seems to be just another ordinary person walking down the street, you may very well be encountering an “ordinary” hero.
