Growing up my heroes were athletes such as John Stockton and Joe Montana. As an adult I realize that they were great athletes, but not heroes. Being talented, famous, or rich does not make you a hero. Here are some examples of real heroes:
It is rare for a hero to receive recondition. Most heroes never make the news or history books; they are just ordinary people who do ordinary things. A hero, is mother who sacrifices her carrier to raise her children. A hero, is someone who has lost their job, but instead of going on unemployment, they work odd jobs, dip into savings, and cut back on expenses, until they find a good job. A hero, is a father who works day after day in a job he hates, to provide for his family. A hero, is someone who puts the needs of others above their own selfish desires. You are far more likely to find a hero living in your neighborhood than you are on TV.
