In our lives, have we ever felt an immense struggle to survive? Have we ever felt that death was an option?

Some have faced them before reaching a year old. Incubator premature babies and their mothers begin the struggle for life once they arrive here on planet earth.

Child Heroes

A reoccurring theme here at EDH recently has been about the special heroism of babies and small children, along with their brave parents. The parent-child relationship involves both parents and their children to be brave at times, and activate the hero gene inside of them. From a little girl playing the harp as if she had been at it for over 20 years, to preemie mamas and their babies fighting to survive, heroes really do come in all shapes and sizes. So this week, we ask you all to look […]

Unconditional Love

We want to talk about something rather important today. Whether it be a mother and her preemie baby, or a heroic act, unconditional love and genuine concern are always involved. Team EDH considers love to be a vital component of heroism, because heroic acts can be done out of love many times. Parents who love their children are part time heroes too, and concern is always expressed when someone saves another’s life. This week, think about who and what you love, and why you love it. Think about how love […]
