Henson’s Heroes

Written by Master Charles Cannon, Will Wilkinson


Henson’s Heroes are two kids in a Children’s Hospital in Kansas City, MO. who inspire nurses and others to do good deeds by giving toys away. Caleb was born with brain and spinal cord problems. Raegan had a brain tumor

They know how it feels to be in a hospital over Christmas and that’s what inspired them to start their program. For anyone like us who reads about it, there’s much more than toys being given. Here’s an example of what we can obviously call “the Christmas spirit” at work in a most unlikely way.

For those suffering during this season – and some people suffer because they believe everyone but them is happy – here’s a great life lesson: When you are challenged yourself, reach out and help others. History shows us that many of our heroes had to overcome great personal adversity in their lives. We tend to champion what they did without being aware of their personal struggles. JFK’s endured crippling back pain. Mother Teresa’s father was murdered when she was 9. Winston Churchill was a chronic stutterer as a child.

Let’s appreciate heroism for what it is, for instance, exemplified by these two young children: helping others regardless of your own personal problems.
