Selflessness is simply putting others first, giving all of yourself to help people even when it’s inconvenient for you. A Hero is one that is selfless.
This perfectly described Joe Blankson in 2018, He played the role of a Hero and more after a boat accident that occurred somewhere in an ocean in Rivers State, Nigeria. The accident involved 25 passengers on board the boat.
Joe Blankson dived into the ocean and rescued them one after the other until the 13th person. However, he lost his life on his way swimming through the water the 14th time to rescue the 14th person.
Indeed, this degree of selflessness wore caps. Not all heroes wear capes.
Rest in peace, Joe Blankson. Your good works and sacrificial selflessness will forever linger in the heart of all Nigerians.
