A Hero among Men

I am convinced that heroes live among us.  Unlike the superheroes in the movies, these selfless individuals do not wear capes or tights.  These heroes among men show kindness in quiet, yet meaningful ways.
I had the opportunity to create a superman themed bead for a child at the Beads of Courage Artist Challenge in Tucson, AZ.  It quickly became apparent how a bead press could easily shave immense time off of the shaping process.  When I asked about a custom press, Ray Skene was more than willing to take on the intense project.  The press is a work of art and will allow me to create many special beads to donate to Beads of Courage.  I know he doesn't fly, but his kindness allows others' spirits to soar.  Ray is my hero!
