My Hero

In this image made from video Maria D'Antuono, is interviewed after being rescued from the upper floors of her quake damaged home in Tempera, Italy, Wednesday, April 8, 2009, by firefighters using a extended ladder. D'Antuono, who said that she had remained in bed amidst the rubble after the earthquake hit early on Monday, told journalists that she had spent the past few days knitting.

According to, a hero is a person of "distinguished courage or ability, admired for... brave deeds and noble qualities." (The definition also included hero sandwich, but that's a topic for another day.)

And so, a tip of the knitting needles to Maria for her brave and noble qualities...crafting in the face of adversity.
