WHAT HEROES

They wear a cloak of invisibility no one sees them working behind the scenes rearranging the scenery inspecting the wires from which hang the future of daybreak brown sugar atop the oatmeal lunches and backpacks hurried goodbyes the school bus rendezvous. No one sees them as they ride the bus enter through the service entrance to work supporting the backbone of a country that does not see them for invisibility has no color. John G.

A moving write, John! I think we have a country of them that go unnoticed in all fields, We are more interested in blowing our own horn,,than acknowledging another. Pangie

Thanks for stopping to read and comment Regina. So many do so much for so little and go unnoticed
