Is it me or have the past few months flown by? It seems like school just started and now we're counting down the days to Christmas already. One of my favorites things about this season is all of the movies that are released just in time for the holidays. To celebrate the release of Disney’s “Planes Fire & Rescue” on Blu-ray and Digital HD on Tuesday, November 4, 2014, I want to take a minute to talk about the Everyday Heroes in our lives - our kids.
Are my kids Everyday Heroes? Absolutely. And I hope yours are too! There are certainly enough super-powers to go around, so let's all embrace the hero qualities that our kids have.
No one is saying that you need to be perfect to be a hero. Even the best heroes have their faults. But, one thing I've noticed about my kids (and some of the coolest heroes around) is that being a hero means taking the the spotlight off of yourself and putting it on someone else instead. It means doing good things for others because you know it's the right thing to do, not because you want to be acknowledged.
There is something special about being humble and helping others. Just like Dusty, from Planes Fire & Rescue, it's important to recognize that sometimes you need to shift gears to make an impact.
In Planes Fire & Rescue, Dusty, a world-famous air racer learns that he may never race again and he is launched into the world of aerial firefighting. Dusty joins forces with a team of veteran firefighters; together, they battle a massive fire, and Dusty learns what it takes to become a true hero.
This movie is a fun high energy action-adventure story that is perfect for the whole family. And, I like the message that putting your ego to the side and working together as a team can lead to great accomplishments.
“A real hero doesn't expect to be thanked or even recognized.”
― Tom Collins
Now, that the weather is already getting ridiculously cold here in the Philadelphia suburbs, I know my family and I are going to be having more cozy movie nights over the next few months. If you are too, you might want to buy Disney Planes Fire and Rescue here. It's a heroic story filled with humor and heart.
Follow me on instagram to see some of my kids #EverydayHero moments and join in the #PlanesFireandRescueSweeps Twitter party on Thursday, November 6th, from 4-5pm PST (7-8pm EST).
