"What we yearn for are reminders of our common humanity, reminders that in a world that seems to run on avarice and voyeurism, there is still a deep vein of care, of kindness and sacrifice. Steve Flairty, in his Everyday Heroes series, mines that vein with curiosity and appreciation, showing us story by story that there's a thriving underground of love and generosity, showing us the better part of how to be human together in this chaotic world."
—David T. Miller, writer, editor, and occasional poet, Lexington, Kentucky
"In these pages, you'll meet Kentuckians who rise up to the definition of heroes: imperfect and human yet courageous, having a certain nobility of character that has borne a life of remarkable good and inspiration. And read their stories carefully, for I
believe you'll notice that in each one there is mention of yet another hero, often unsung, who helped shape him or her — a parent, neighbor, teacher, or friend."
—W. Eric Fruge, author of The Traitors of Montsecours
