Sometimes to me the word hero can get used far too often, labelling people who although are obviously talented individuals and successful, but yet lack the status of the word hero.
When a word like this gets used too much, it can start to lose its meaning. To me, the people who deserve to be given this title are the people who’d probably be least suspecting of it.
I remember when I was in hospital and recovering from quite a serious operation. I was receiving treatment from a nurse who really helped me through some dark times. Always smiling, always cheerful, optimistic and bright, her personality was what helped me to recover some strength which was needed to push me through my struggle.
I find it amazing when there are people like this, working in professions that require so much care and affection, so much love and yet still have the ability to return to their own normal lives when they leave their hospital, ward or wherever they may be working.
It’s so inspiring to see people who are obviously dealing with such upsetting things, such as the care of a person with a serious illness, with such tactfulness and care. It really takes a hero to be able to do a job like my nurse, Susan managed for me. I know for sure that I’d not have pulled through what I’ve been through without her care within the hospital, and so this is why I believe she truly deserves to be called a hero.
