I am not a fan of overpaid, spoiled and pampered actors who earn far too much pretending to be other people. while people who do actual work, service and know of real sacrifice seem to get overlooked. But this one has caught my attention.

Actress Amy Adams Adams (from Castle Rock, Colorado) gave up her first-class seat on a flight so an American soldier could enjoy the upgrade, while she went to coach. She also did it very quietly and discreetly.

Not that helping soldiers is unheard of by Hollywood, but to actually perform self-sacrifice, (out of the range of cameras) while doing it is unusual. Here’s to Amy, and more so to the artists who go into bases and hot zones around the world to entertain our troops. I wish more would do it. But I am thankful for those who do.
