Sunday night I curled up on the couch to watch the 2013 CNN Heroes: An All-Star Tributes . The top 10 heroes were highlighted (and you can learn more about them and some of the other nominees here.) Their stories were telling, heartwarming, and inspiring of hope. TV you walk away feeling good from (which doesn't happen much any more, these days)!
I've stated before (after the news of the Hero of the Year came out, but before Sunday's show aired) how I was particularly proud of home state eco-man Chad Pregracke. Well, that didn't stop at his acceptance speech. He spoke more about it afterwards (and in this clip below) with Anderson Cooper. Yep! Illinois environmentalist done good--well done, Chad!
If you missed the tribute, you can watch it again this Saturday, December 7th at 9 pm ET/PT on CNN.
