Un­sung he­roes

The Weekend Australian - Magazine - - INBOX -

Bernard Salt does well to alert us to the grow­ing cul­ture of ex­pec­ta­tion among young peo­ple who are con­vinced they are part of a spe­cial gen­er­a­tion. They think the world owes them a liv­ing, and that the needs and wants of those who blazed the trail and of­ten went with­out for them are no longer rel­e­vant. Alan David­son New­cas­tle, NSW Many of us will not have writ­ten the great novel, or scaled the heights, as we imag­ined we would in our youth. Yet, un­like the cur­rent crop of pop-up celebri­ties, there are the un­sung he­roes who would never dream of call­ing them­selves spe­cial, but who nev­er­the­less make mas­sive con­tri­bu­tions to our so­ci­ety on a daily ba­sis, ex­pect­ing noth­ing in re­turn. Let’s cel­e­brate them. He­len Scheller Be­nalla, Vic
