I would like to submit my wife Rachel Babcock as my Hero. Rachel works with disabled adults, while going to school full time in hopes of becoming a nurse, where she will continue to care for others. She the mother of two beautiful children and served in the Minnesota Army National guard, spanning a Deployment to Iraq as well as state side emergencies. Rachel is always working very hard. The attributes that make her a Hero range from her Kind heart to her miles of thoughtful understanding. She performs loving work with the disabled. The kind of honest caring she provides to those in need is what distinguishes my Hero from others. Though at times it can be a trying or even thankless job she doesn’t let it beat her! Where does she get it from? Aside from being awesome, I think it comes from her mom, who works with school children that need extra attention. I know that she finds reward in knowing that the people she cares for are getting real care, from someone who cares and that is a great reward to her. Outside of work she is always there for friends and family. When others are going through a difficult patch Rachel offers her strength. It is true not all Heroes wear a cape, or even a uniform. Rachel is our hero; she exemplifies the characteristics of a Hero and I would like everyone to know it.
