Beautiful and uplifting stories!
When I first started listening to My Unsung Hero, I was so moved by the small gestures of kindness that so many people had encountered and they felt so much gratitude for them. It made me think back to the many times in my life that a stranger did something for me in a time of need and how that made feel. Thank you for providing a bright light in a world that can seem so dark these days!
