DP Daily Prompts: Unsung Heroes

We all have our semi-secret, less known personal favorites –a great B-side, an early work by an artist that later became famous, an obscure(but delicious) family recipe. Share one of your unsung heroes with us–how did you discover it? Why has it stayed off everyone’s radar?

I have a few unsung heroes on my list, one of them is my dad, his accomplishments were many, unfortunately he was in a part of the world where his gift was not recognized, instead of welcoming him, they tried to push him aside, they were not successful, but he died very young.

Second is one of my youngest brother, he was a brilliant student, he loved to read about everything, he was doing Phd. in space science, he too like my dad died early.

Then there was my mom, she’d wow anyone with her cooking skills, friends and family knew her, the knowledge of her gift stayed within the family and friends.

At this moment I know another gifted individual, who is capable of being very famous, he knows it but as far as I know, he doesn’t use his potential as he should which in my mind is a shame.

DP Daily Prompt: Sounds Right

This is clearly subjective, but some words really sound like the thing they describe (personal favorites: Puffin; bulbous;fidgeting).Do you have an example of such a word that sounds the exact opposite of what it refers to? What do you think creates this effect?

I  am having difficulty pin pointing a word that creates this effect, it means something but sounds the exact opposite, rather than take the whole afternoon thinking about it.

I want to write about a particular word, it sounds the same but the meaning changes when it’s spelled differently,i.e There their,they’re.

Most of the time there and their are used incorrectly. I used to have a tough time explaining to my nine year old pupils, why the sentences, e.g Carla went to there house. I want to go over their,are incorrect.
