A hero can be anyone who does something courageous and that we look up to. It can be a friend, family member, teacher or even a whole profession like firefighters and policemen. A hero doesn’t have to be someone who does something that we typically think of when we hear the word hero. It can be someone who saves a child from falling through the cracks of social systems that don’t work well. It can be a parent who works double and triple jobs to keep the family fed and sheltered. It can be a friend who gives everything she has to make sure others don’t want for anything. It can be the child who tries hard and doesn’t give up despite injury or sickness.
Heroes are everyday people who do things in an extraordinary way. They do more than is expected of them and more than most people in the same situation would do. Heroes are people we look up to and respect and aim to be like. They are people that we point out to our kids and others that it would in their best interest to be like. Heroes make life a little more worth living.
There are many ways to show your hero that you support them and are in awe of them. You can do it with a card, an award, a gift, a newspaper article about them or by vocalizing your pride in them at a public event. However, on a day to day basis, a steady, fun and encouraging way to support your hero is by wearing a T-shirt that says that he or she is your hero.
You can get a custom-made T-shirt made stating who your hero is and why. You can add pictures of the person; maybe even some action shots. What could be more heartwarming than to see your name and face on someone’s T-shirt as their hero? Often we don’t even know that we are someone’s hero, unless we have done some flashy act, like saving his or her life. However, for people in professions where caring is an important part of their job, often they get burnt out and feel like they make no real difference in anyone’s life. By learning that they do make a difference and that they are a hero to someone can make a huge difference.
For anyone who feels that an entire profession is heroic, a T-shirt saying so is a great idea. If you feel that way, there are certainly other people who share the feeling. If you have hero T-shirts made up to sell as part of a fundraising campaign for the group, you get several bonuses. You can contribute the raised money to the group, you can rally their moral with the support T-shirts and you can make them aware that they are truly heroes, all of which are important things to anyone.
