Seeking Everyday Heroes in NYC

No, this isn't a personal ad. (If it were, I'd just be seeking one hero.) I've just received an extraordinarily wonderful assignment at work that I'll be doing instead of my "Blog On!" column. This feature, which will be ongoing, will focus on individual New Yorkers who make a positive difference in others' lives: people who volunteer, work for nonprofits, do teaching or community outreach, or any other kind of work where they go above and beyond the call of duty.

I'll write more about this new feature as its debut approaches. In the meantime, if you know anyone who lives or works in the New York City area — it could be yourself — who deserves attention for the good work he or she does, please drop me a line with a little information about them: dawn -at- (replacing the "-at-" with an atsign). If the person sounds like the kind of subject I'm looking for, I'll write back to request contact information. Thanks!

Also, thanks very much to readers who have prayed for me over the past year; it means a lot to me.
