Hero: a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements, or noble qualities. (Oxford)
Who is a hero? Who is a hero to you?
Don is one of my heroes. He served us (U.S.) in all of the toughest places. At the end of last January doctors had to remove part of his leg. Something was missed medically. He came within hours of losing his life. Don does not want nor will he tolerate any pity. Notice his t-shirt. Another one says, "They said it would cost an arm and a leg. I negotiated." He has the best attitude. He is an inspiration. Don is a hero.
M and I shared a class together. She is a beautiful, elegant woman, and mother of three sons. Her husband's car hit a sheet of black ice and was killed instantly. The next time I saw M she was driving a tractor working in the dirt and dust. Through several hard labor jobs, she pieced together enough to raise and educate her sons. She is a hero.
Tell me something about your hero in the comments section below. What makes her/him a hero to you? I promise to read and respond.
