A Better East Texas: Everyday Heroes

It seems we're living in a society starved for attention. Everywhere we turn is another celebrity's story of charitable giving – caught on tape, of course, or an athlete's accomplishments legitimized with a multi-million dollar paycheck. Whatever happened to doing great things just for the sake of doing them? That is the idea behind KLTV 7's Everyday Heroes. We want to showcase the people who aren't in the spotlight. The people who do great things- not because anyone is watching, but because it's just part of who they are. They're the people who inspire us. Give us hope. The ones who make us all want to be better sons, daughters, parents or friends. They lend a helping hand...They are a shoulder to lean on…They are the everyday heroes all over East Texas. Maybe it's a friend, a neighbor, a family member or even a co-worker who is doing something extraordinary on a regular basis just because they can. It could be a simple thing, or something amazing. Whatever it is they deserve our thanks. Help us highlight these members of our community by sending us your nominations. Just log on to kltv.com and click on Everyday Heroes. We will have a new selection each month. Your help highlighting these good doers around our community will make this a Better East Texas.
