A Hero. Inspired by Dakota Meyer. Poem by Patrick Perkinson
inspired by a visit on Adair County Salutes Dakota Meyer Day
By Patrick Perkinson, LaGrange, KY
A hero wakes up one day,A note from the poet: I am married to Susan Smith from Columbia. She works with her mother at Flowers & Things. I am originally from Henry County but live in LaGrange, KY now. We were down there on Sunday for the celebration and it just kind of hit me. Yes, I am the author and wrote this today. I write stories that a good friend and I turn into song lyrics. I submitted to Columbia Magazine because I thought it would be a great way to relay my thoughts to people. Thank you for the consideration. - PATRICK PERKINSON
