In Focus: Heroes among us

Published: Friday, Nov. 22, 2013 5:30 a.m. CDT

During the last several weeks, I had the privilege of meeting and photographing 23 “Everyday Heroes” throughout Kane County for a special section published this week.

Every single person I met inspired me.

I grew up as part of a family rooted in its community, and these 23 people exemplified the same ideals my parents and grandparents instilled in me. 

One of those heroes was Batavia resident Sue Campbell, who showed off her Amazon parrot while giving me a tour of her home.

I had such a blast chatting and laughing with our heroes as they let me into their lives.
