Produced and directed by Knights of Columbus, ABC aired a new documentary titled Everyday Heroes this past Sunday.

The documentary, that runs for 57 minutes, follows the lives of 14 men and one parish community who have demonstrated acts of kindness in their respective communities. The documentary’s focus on kindness and selflessness reminds us that true heroism is often a characteristic of those who are the most humble.

“There’s a real crisis of heroism in our culture but it’s certainly not for a lack of everyday heroes,” says Carl Anderson, Supreme Knight of the Knights of Columbus and executive producer of the documentary. “If we look carefully, we can see there are heroes all around us.”

After it’s six-week run on ABC, the film will be available for free. Until then, you can check your local listings.
