A quotation from Rogers, Will:

This thing of being a hero, about the main thing to it is to know when to die. Prolonged life has ruined more men that it ever made.

Today in Labor History November 13, 1909: The Cherry Coal Mine Disaster in Illinois resulted in the deaths of 259 men and boys. Nearly 200 men and boys made it to safety. Another 21 survived 8 days underground, drinking water from the seams to stay alive and eventually made it back alive, although one of them later died from complications. John Bundy made 6 successful trips back down into the mine to rescue comrades. On the 7th trip down, he, too, died.

This conversation between Frank Herbert and an English professor gets into so many interesting themes. The difference between a hero and an anti-hero, the difference between ethics and morals, the way the West handles environmental issues.

To Lead a Meaningful Life, Become Your Own Hero.

"Our research reveals that the hero’s journey is not just for legends and superheroes. In a recent study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology, we show that people who frame their own life as a hero’s journey find more meaning in it. This insight led us to develop a “restorying” intervention to enrich individuals’ sense of meaning and well-being."

Probably the sweetest cat pic I've ever seen. 😍 It came from a news report about a house #fire. The owners were freaked because all the #family got out but the #cat didn't. And then, a #hero emerged from the #smoke!

#Cats #Caturday #CatsOfMastodon #IAmDB

A four-panel photo from a news article about a house fire, a cat, and a hero. 

Panel 1: A firefighter has been working a fire and is wearing his turnout jacket, harnesses, heavy gloves, a respirator/oxygen mask, and helmet. He's seen walking and holding a cat in his arms. The cat is laying on its back and looks totally limp and lifeless. 

Panel 2: The fireman is still holding the cat but now he's also holding a tiny little oxygen mask over the cat's face. There's a look of hopeful concern on his face. 

Panel 3: The cat's eyes are open and it's right-side up now. It's got its face pushed into the oxygen mask. The fireman's hand, dirty with soot, can be seen stroking the cat's ear. 

Panel 4: The fireman is still holding the cat but now the cat is sitting straight up in his arms and is staring directly at the fireman, as if it's trying to convey its thanks and gratitude for saving its life. The fireman looks pleased and is petting the cat on the back of the head with his dirty hand. It doesn't look like the cat minds. A happy ending!

Not to mention his work was considered top secret even after the war ended… so no recognition until after his death. So sad!

morning musing: #RealityTV has been a major player in training the general public to think of people in terms of #hero or #villain Producers film for hours then edit it down to make the audience #love or #hate someone. It seems to me that this "formula" has infected our #news and #politics and created a dystopic society.

Violins Not Violence


Police respond to the violin vigil for Elijah McClain with aggression and violence. If you don't know who Elijah McClain is, take some time to learn and remember his name. The trial of paramedics that killed him starts Monday, while police perpetrators go on trial for homicide beginning next month.

A moment of silent appreciation for the #UnsungHeroes of the Internet this evening. Among their number, this man on YouTube who thoughtfully filmed a video showing how to pack up a cheap Lidl pop-up tent. There are 45 comments below expressly thanking him and 605 👍 on the video. After 3 separate attempts over 6 weeks and 45 minutes of swearing this evening, I can finally add to that number.

Friends say Oregon man was killed while defending LGBTQ friend - He was a ‘protector’ by nature. Just a reminder that being an ally, standing up for what is just and right, can come with a substantial cost. Still, individuals like this man, RIP, do not shrink from the challenge, even if it costs their lives. We should all be so strong and brave. #murder #LGBTQIA #LGBTQ #Defense #hate #HateCrimes #RIP #hero

@25kV a #hero like that. Alone.

Look, everyone. How everyone loves a hero

This should come as no surprise to any #veteran

They love him & then leave him alone now, but if he was still making jokes & playing the piano with his 🍆 they’d be with him asking for free tickets to see him, or something 😤

If I was there with him, I’d be making sure he’s #safe.

Shit, any #military member fighting for good would have my attention.

Ask any of those people in front of a camera & they’d hug him

Es ist viel gekommen heute, womit ich heute gar nicht gerechnet hatte.

Die Rennrad-Hosen sind leider nicht rechtzeitig zur Tour am 17.06. fertig geworden, wurden aber jetzt nachgeliefert. Mit der Hose und dem Trikot und auch die „Finisher-Hero“-Medaille 🏅 versendet.

Die Medaille bekommt bei mir einen schönen Platz. Es ist eine schöne Erinnerung an meine erste 300 Kilometer-Tour.

Und ja, ich bin ein klein wenig stolz auf mich! 💪

@MacropodCare whether it was last week or last century, in my book everyone who has had a part in keeping the iron horses running is a #hero of the preservation movement.

@cstross @JdeBP

What always bothered me about James Bond movie villains was that they delighted in being #evil. They explicitly chose to be evil, announced it, bragged about just how evil they were.

I don't know who said it, but I read someone once "Everyone is the #hero in their own story". The people doing evil, from their own POV, are doing #good, for the good of the world.

See: missionaries, moral crusaders, drug laws, politicians.

#007 would be very different if this was followed.

To The Brave And Strong.

Thinking of Lois Curtis today. Remember her resilience and determination. She is deserving of every persons respect. If you don't know who she is, take some time to discover.

Without her, there would be no Olmstead Act protecting the right to freedom. The links below tell her story from many different points of view, including the familial. There is however, much that still needs to change on the trail that Lois blazed.

Her strength and courage will always inspire me.
She was a Superhero for Invisible Disability Rights and forever, will be.

Thank you Lois.
OutOfExile_IDR ❤️ #gratitude #respect #JeMeSouviens

Excerpt from faams. org article linked below:
"Lois never gave up or stopped being positive. She lived a meaningful life in the community after she won her lawsuit. In her own words, this is what living in the community meant to Lois, "

“Well, I make grits, eggs, and sausage in the morning and sweep the floor. I go out to eat sometimes. I take art classes. I draw pretty pictures and make money. I go out of town and sell me artwork. I go to church and pray to the Lord. I raise my voice high! In the summer I go to the pool and put my feet in the water. Maybe I’ll learn to swim someday. I been fishing. I seen a pig and a horse on a farm. I buy clothes and shoes. I have birthday parties. They a lot of fun. I’m not afraid of big dogs no more. I feel good about myself. My life a better life.”

Rich Fierro's a veteran, owns a small business, and is a Hispanic man. On paper, he's the type of voter that the GQP and Fox News work to recruit to the right.

But Rich was also one of the two who stopped the shooter in Colorado Springs. At some point in his life, Rich Fierro chose to be a friend rather than a hater. And that put him in a position... to be a hero.
