87-year-old woman spent months knitting 75 hats to keep children warm during winter

When we hear the word ‘hero,’ the image we immediately think of is a muscular or physically fit human who is at the prime of his age.

And when we are talking about heroism, the first thing that enters our mind are mostly about people rescuing others from a burning building or a catastrophe.

But that’s the beautiful thing about heroism, it does not rely on man alone but rather in the occasion. Anyone can be a hero as long as one is decided to answer to the call of the situation before him.

Believe it or not, even the 87-year-old anonymous woman in Massachusetts is a hero in her own right despite of her old age. Her skin may be wrinkled, her bones may not be as strong as it used to be, yet it did not deter her from doing her best to help others.

In her desire to keep the children in her community warm, the anonymous old lady knitted a total of 75 hats. Each of the hat she made took her a day to complete. Which she started knitting even before the cold weather of the Winter season hit the air.

For some, it might be tedious but for the old lady, knitting every day is truly worth the time and effort after considering the children who will benefit from it.

After accomplishing the 75 hats, the anonymous old woman’s daughter gathered them and stored them in plastic bags.

Later on, she took it to Nelson Memorial Park in Plymouth, Mass and hung it around the fence of the local park for the children to take and keep themselves warm with.

The selfless and heroic act of the anonymous woman became viral and made noise online. After all, it is not everyday that a woman would knit 75 hats and leave them at a park for anyone to use.
