The Oxford dictionary defines an unsung hero as, “a person who makes a substantive yet unrecognized contribution; a person whose bravery is unknown or unacknowledged.”
Life is full of unsung heroes, people who will never be recognized fully or at all for the vital contributions they’ve made. An unsung hero is basically the opposite of that person who is always trying to “toot they’re own horn”, (I have to say I’ve never written that phrase out, and it looks kind of weird, right?).
Anyway, for the unsung hero their contribution is felt and heard but cannot be traced back to them to account for the positive impact they have had. They go unnoticed, unrecognized, and unthanked.
The other day I was reading a familiar story when all of a sudden I was stopped dead in my tracks. I noticed something so significant I had never seen before. Hidden in this miraculous story was the testimony of a band of unsung heroes who played a major role in the making of this particular miracle.
