In the Greek Pantheon, there are some names that command attention. After all, they are deities, so it is natural to notice them. I was a lover of Greek Mythology as a child. I sat and read D'Aulaires' Book of Greek Myths by the hour. The illustrations were exquisite, and the stories fascinating. I was later to learn that I was not alone in my fondness for these stories, I found that much of our culture references the stories of Zeus, Apollo, Aphrodite, and Athena.

My good friend Tom Brennan wrote this moving piece about the unsung heroes among us. Enjoy!
