Saving the day is not the hard part of this job, deciding what not to do is, everybody expects me to do everything from saving cats on trees to stopping armed robbers, so today I decided to see how things would be without me.

I woke up to the normal everyday alarm of need from my neighbor and ignored it because today I was the hero who was going to give them back their power of believing in themselves and being brave.

The meaning of being a hero has changed to me, from being somebody who saved people to somebody who teaches people how to save them selves.

This had to be the hardest day for me as it felt like I was letting my city down just to prove a point to myself but then I discovered everything that is going on is bigger than me.
