“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about”
In this epoch, everybody’s is interest is engrossed in cricket matches, football match or award ceremonies or cinema. Cricket fervent fans would cheer for their cricket heroes, respectively celebrities are cheered for their new upcoming movies, however have you ever noticed heroes around you? Can you see anyone helping blind people or an old lady to cross road? You would have even noticed a man sweeping the road everyday, or the traffic police saving puppies from accident everyday, right? These are unsung heroes of our society.
Unsung heroes are the one never who never involved in complains and always looks to complete their work on time, to help everyone willingly and are unselfish. Have you ever appreciated the maid who works in your house, have you appreciated for taking your dirty clothes and wash them? Just imagine life without them. There are many people whose work is not noticed and even not appreciated. People like company employees, office cleansers, after party cleaner, street cleaners regularly work hard and accomplish their task without any demand for appreciation or medals for their acts. There are many institutes who identify and appreciate the unsung heroes. Lowell Milken is one of them; the institute has been working in this field for many years and I am glad we have such institute between us.
Unsung heroes are the people in our society who a make big difference just by their small deed. I would better say they are one weaving the network of our society by their love and affection. Some of them are uneducated yet their deeds matter a lot and it even leaves an indelible mark on people’s heart.
There are many unsung heroes, one of them are the men and women who teach kids on the streets. They teach many life enhancing skills which include pottery, carpentry, even philosophical lessons. They do all this for free and even enjoy the work. They don’t want their skills and expertise to go in waste and so for a better generation, for the generation that has a future they work like anything. Another example of unsung heroes is the men and women who start a movement to collect the garbage and potholes in our society so that our cars can travel smoothly and our streets to stay clean. They even visit the sick and make sure their elders are fit and healthy. They fantasize a society where all are happy and living their life. Unsung heroes are architects of our ideal society.

Our family members, especially our mother are most important unsung hero of our life. She used to change our diapers when we were kids; she takes care for our food and many other things. Moreover, a hero can be anyone, even a man doing something simple and reassuring as putting a coat around a little boy’s shoulder to let him know that the world hadn’t ended.
