...and a hero will rise

There are people who we turn to in times of laughter, despair and loneliness. To us, these individuals are what they are in our eyes; heroes.

They are the one who we depend on to solve our problems. The ones to who we see as our best friend to join in our most joyous moments that we consider not sharing those moments with them almost a sin. They are also the ones who make us feel we want to live in this world again because they listen to our constant nagging about feeling lonely and how we would like to see the day we get wed off sooner than yesterday.

It is to those people, who we owe our very lives' sanities.

They could be our family members. Our best friend. The love of our life. Or someone we had just bumped into all of a sudden.

All in all, there is a need to dedicate that same amount of time, and tender touch to other people who find themselves in our own past situations.

Its not so a matter to become a hero in their eyes, but to show that we could a better father figure, so to speak, to them.

This is one of the things that the younger generation lacks here in Oman and should be implemented without delay.

It is a great feeling to know that we have someone to rely on to be there for us when we need them most. It is a wonderful feeling to know that special someone who has a 'shoulder to cry on' and an ear to lend, at all hours of every day and not just when it is convenient to them.

And it is only natural to be that someone back.

I totally agree with you!
