Houston's new nickname - The City of Heroes

This petition had 222 supporters

L.A. calls itself the City of Angels, and while it’s great that they have angels watching over them, down here in H-Town, we like to take care of ourselves. Space City, H-Town, Bayou City, Screwston, Hustle-Town, Clutch City, Crush City, The Magnolia City. Houston has its fair share of nicknames, but after the events that occurred during and following Hurricane Harvey, there’s one missing that encapsulates the heart and soul of the city and its people. As the natural disaster unfolded—one of the worst and most devastating that Houston had ever seen—the world witnessed the best of the best that Houston has to offer, and offer it did, plentifully and selflessly. Our firefighters, police officers, military, medical professionals, city leaders, and most importantly our ordinary citizens got in formation to help each other city-wide and beyond, demonstrating compassion, heroism, and, well, Houstonianism. To honor and remember those that offered help, put smiles on people’s faces, and risked their lives to help those in our community, we think it’s only fitting that the Mayor recognize “The City of Heroes” as Houston’s newest and most fitting nickname.

Sign, SHARE, support the nickname and remember the everyday heroes of Houston.
