Overseas Workers like OFW’s take a considerable amount of risk when they travel and work abroad. Migrants and Overseas Filipino Workers (Ofw) sacrifice a lot in order to give a better life for their families. They are heroes in their own right because they live to help their families and sometimes even other people they do not even know but are in need of their help and support.
Heroes think of other people first before they think of themselves. Heroes are unique individuals that sacrifice themselves for the sake of others. I have read many news articles and books about how migrants, overseas workers like OFWs face insurmountable challenges head on with only their faith, hope and determination to carry them through. They strive hard to ensure that their kids future would be bright and that they would live a life that they dream of.
What are migrants and overseas workers like OFW’s made of? They are made up of determination, courage, a risk taking attitude, a heart of gold and a lot more intangibles that make them as everyday heroes to a lot of people. They go beyond their call of duty to help their families, to help their country and sometimes people in need even if it means putting him or herself in danger.
You do not have be an overseas worker like an OFW to be a hero, you are a hero if you sacrifice a part of yourself to help other people who are need. You are a hero if you can make someone else smile despite the trials and challenges they have. You are a hero if you can make others feel better about themselves. If you do that then you are a hero in that person’s heart.
