Helen Keller said, “The world is moved along, not only by the mighty shoves of its heroes, but also by the aggregate of the tiny pushes of each honest worker.” Our writers on the Inkwell Literary Magazine staff have explored the mighty shoves of the well-known heroes, but also the honest work of those heroes who go unsung in this, our third issue, “Heroism.”

Heroism: great bravery; putting others first, even at the peril of self.

From a look at the everyday bravery of parents to the sacrifice of martyrs, the pieces in this issue are a tribute to all the heroes who have made us who we are and who have shown us what heroism is. We hope this issue is inspiring to our readers and an encouragement to all the heroes who fell as if their efforts are going unnoticed. And as always, we hope it brings glory to the world’s greatest Hero, Jesus Christ.

“Because whatever has been born of God conquers the world. This is the victory that has conquered the world: our faith. And who is the one who conquers the world but the one who believes that Jesus is the Son of God?” - 1 John 5:4-5 HCSB
