You, Sir, Are My Hero Vol. 1

hero

There’s been some depressing shit happening in DC lately – so I’ve decided to start a new feature highlighting the unappreciated heroes in our midst. These are the quiet heroes, they don’t boast about their feats on twitter. They were just born this way. My first nomination is this man spotted on the 11th Street bike lane in Columbia Heights. For those not familiar with this section of 11th Street that is a rather steep incline. I know sometimes it makes me suck wind with nothing more than a 6 pack in my backpack. I can not imagine the determination this modern day Odysseus must have had. You, sir, are my hero.

Should you spot a quiet act of heroism along these lines please do send an email with a brief description and the neighborhood where it was witnessed to [email protected] or tweet @PoPville.
