SEPT. 11 ANNIVERSARYphoto: Marty Lederhandler AP

We’re going to be all right because there’s a hero in all of us. We are the protagonist of our own story.

Then there are those who go beyond the call of duty and that’s what real heroes are made of. No one knows when to run into a burning building.

But people do it. All the time.

Some more than others but who knows when it will be your turn to save the day.

You probably do it without even noticing. A passing smile, letting someone go in front of you at an intersection. Helping someone with a grocery bag. Packing your child’s lunch bag.

When tragedy strikes it’s more evident who is willing to sacrifice their lives.

Soldiers do it every day.

For our freedom. For our lives.

Be a better person. Wake up every morning and look in the mirror. We are all heroes.

Many tragedies have befallen our beautiful country.

We’re going to be okay no matter what happens.

We’ll survive because people are willing to pitch in to make it easier for the less fortunate.

I’ve seen it firsthand.

It’s who we are. It’s what makes us Americans.

It isn’t about what happened to our country September 11, 2001. It’s what happens every day in our country. We all need to be accountable for our lives, enriching those we encounter every day. Let September 11 be a reminder of who we are and how we play our part as heroes.

Wake up every morning, look in the mirror. Who do you see?
