Overall, it was a great night! Every local hero was an inspiration. I was really struck by how many of us found our leadership path through personal experience – whether as a woman who has had an abortion, a lesbian cop, a homeless addict or a loving mother to a special needs child – each local hero found a calling from their own life. Combine that with passion, family support, mentorship, courage, tenacity and vision – we cannot be stopped! My fellow awardess have forever improved the lives of countless people and family’s.
Go Local Heroes!
