Hope and Heroism is a blog focused on seeing hope in the darkness of mental illness, the frustrations of daily life, and the injustice in our communities. The world is full of hope and heroes. Every person who gets up in the morning when fighting depression is a hero. Everyone who shows someone else love and kindness in their office is a hero. Each person who stands up for the rights of others, even in small ways, is a hero. Hope is alive, but change happens slowly in seemingly unimportant moments of everyday heroism.

While Hope and Heroism is authored by a Christian and religion is referenced throughout some posts, it is not solely a faith-based blog. All are welcome here, regardless of religion, race, gender, or any other defining characteristic. This is meant to be a safe and loving community where we can talk, encourage, and be encouraged.
