4 1/2-Year-Old Looks Up to His Mailman in the Cutest Way (VIDEO)

Growing up, who was your childhood hero? Was it some fictitious character with superpowers, or an everyday person? Carter Lawson is a 4 1/2-year-old Tennessee boy who idolizes his mailman.


No, really, he loves "Mailman Mike" so much that he dresses up in a postal worker uniform and assists Mike with his route.

This has got to be one of the sweetest things I've ever seen. I'm sure Mike enjoys the extra set of hands -- even if dear Carter can't drive the truck, or unlatch gates (maybe he can). I just hope Mama keeps her smile and a close eye on things (better to be safe than sorry) as she continues to encourage the interaction.

Postal workers might not be as exciting as an actor, musician, or athlete, but they can be just as inspiring. They, along with other professions that focus on serving others, are reminders that you can make a difference in your community -- and don't have to have a cape to be a hero.
