I Know Some of the Most Important People in the World… and They’re Not Famous
I know people.
Yeah, that’s right, I know people.
I’m something special because I know some pretty important people — some of the most special people around.
No, not Beyoncé and not Jay Z or Bono or anyone famous.
I know special people who have to sacrifice everything.
I know special people who have to ignore the stares.
I know special people who have to grieve over the loss of their children.
I know special people who have to wipe tears from their eyes all the time when no one is looking.
I know heroes who painfully worry about someone other than themselves.
I know unbelievably strong people who will never be recognized for what they do.
I know people who matter to the people who need them.
I know people who don’t eat or sleep because of those who rely on them.
I know people who lay awake at night accepting the reality that they or someone they love dearly is going to leave us all sooner than they should.
I know people who will forever be caretakers.
I know real heroes who live amongst us unheralded, unrecognized, under appreciated.
I know the mighty!
