Heroes use God’s gift to man:
A Moral Compass
A hero is many of these qualities and more. Heroes are what we need today.
Here are 12 ways to spot a real-life hero:
- Hero of a Moral Compass
Heroes can be very young. Anne Frank was only fifteen when she died, but evil in Nazi Germany made her wise beyond her years.
Anne Frank is a superhero of a moral compass. Her human spirit lives on through her courageous words that even today stupefy people by her audacity to face the devil with her unwavering belief in good:
“In spite of everything I still believe that people are really good at heart. I simply can’t build up my hopes on a foundation consisting of confusion, misery, and death. I see the world gradually being turned into a wilderness, I hear the ever approaching thunder, which will destroy us too, I can feel the sufferings of millions and yet, if I look up into the heavens, I think that it will all come right, that this cruelty too will end, and that peace and tranquility will return again.”
A hero’s moral compass guides them to do the right thing. They face unbeatable odds. A hero heals when the wound is too large to suture. Anne Frank saw good, and a hero always keeps the faith.
- Hero for the Defenseless
Lila Rose a superhero for unborn babies. Her constant support to save unborn babies from abortion makes her a modern-day hero.
Lila Rose’s activist work has helped save millions of lives. A hero puts others before themselves, and Lila Rose had dedicated her life to ending abortion. A hero protects the defenseless.
She is the author of ‘Fighting for Life: Becoming a Force for Change in a Wounded World.” Heroes fight for life. Lila Rose fights for unborn babies. Heroes take immediate action.
- Hero of Sacrifice
Lt. Col. George Thomas Sargent Jr.
An American superhero – George Thomas Sargent Jr. USMC. George Thomas Sargent Jr. answered the call of duty and paid the ultimate sacrifice. Heroes give of themselves, even if it means their lives.
The Vietnam War was over decades ago, but the emotions can still be raw in many American families. The unspoken war still lingers in the field of minds like napalm in the seventies. Old vets live the Vietnam War every day. Children still think about their fathers who died in Vietnam. Lt. Col. Sargent was a leader, not a follower. He stood for his country, and a hero willingly gives. Here is a video of this American hero:

We Need More Real-Life Heroes Today
- Hero of Truth
Candace Owens is a true modern-day hero. Her courage comes from within.
Candace thinks for herself. She shapes her own opinions and is articulate enough to get her message across. She stands up for what she believes in and is not afraid to speak her mind. A hero has conviction. A quote by Candace:
“You can still say whatever you want to on social media, but you have to be willing to stand by your words.”
Candace’s social media posts are constantly being labeled as false. Her tenacity to go after the lying media has no bounds. She does without being asked, and a hero helps others.
- Hero of Courage
Tre Jones and Marcus Harvey
A true hero runs toward danger like the firefighters did on 9/11. Recently, two young men ran inside a burning building and saved a stranger in Marion, Indiana.
Without any regard for their own lives, they jumped into action. Once they knew someone was inside the house, Tre Jones states:
“I don’t say I’m a superhero, but I’m human. I help when I can help.”
Superheroes can possess extraordinary mental faculties and physical abilities needed to get the job done. Like the Cowardly Lion, who was never cowardly, Tre and Marcus showed true courage.
Heroes are all around us
- Hero of Integrity
A fifteen-year-old student at Rosemount High School in Rosemount, Minnesota, gave a speech about what Critical Race Theory is doing to his school.
Brad faces his obstacles head-on and tells the school board the truth about the damaging effects of the “Leftist agenda” in education.
In the speech, Taylor states, “schools are quickly becoming a place where promoting activism is actually more important than promoting education.”
This is part of the 12 ways to spot a hero. A hero stands up and speaks the truth. Brad Taylor is not afraid, to be honest, when many other young people feel scared to speak up about how they think about a radical plan at their school.
Here is a video of his speech:
- Hero of Bravery
U.S. President Donald J. Trump
A hero is brave enough to face the maddening crowd. Donald Trump faces many enemies and does not back down.
Many other men would have duck-tailed and run, but Trump has gusto. He has the nerve to face down his enemies. The power that comes after him is the greatest in the world, and like a hero, Trump braces himself and gives it all he has. A hero does not quaver. They tell it like it is and let the chips fall where they may. Trump speaks his mind, and a hero braves his critics. Donald Trump stood up to a global world of bullies and made mincemeat out of every one of them. Trump is not through yet.
- Hero of Inspiration
A hero inspires others to do better. Diana Princess of Wales chooses hope, and love as she walked down the aisle toward her prince.
Diana’s fortitude to do what she thought was right won her world recognition. When the fairytale came crashing down, as many do, she inspired many people to be honest about their life. Diana faced down her nemesis, and heroes do not back down. Her grace and beauty captured the world, but her strength to live the way she thought was right gave her the world’s respect.
- Hero of Strength
Strength is essential for a hero to defeat evil. The folk hero Gilgamesh embodies strength. He uses his superpower to fight for the good.
Gilgamesh was a major hero in ancient Mesopotamian mythology. An epic poem from The Epic of Gilgamesh (written c. 2150 – 1400 BC). It is the oldest piece of world literature known. Gilgamesh’s quest was to find immortality. A strong, young hero sets out on an adventure and discovers the meaning of life.
Real-Life Heroes Keep the World Safe
- Hero of Honor
Red Eagle aka William Weatherford
Here is another of the 12 ways to spot a hero. A hero has honor. Red Eagle, aka William Weatherford to whites, led the Creek Indians in a war against the United States (1813-14). His father was a Scott, and his mother was a Creek Indian.
He was the leader of the Fort Mims Massacre. He is famous for jumping off a bluff into the Tallapoosa River to escape the Americans during the Battle of Horseshoe Bend. After Andrew Jackson defeated the Creek Indians at Horseshoe Bend, Red Eagle surrendered to Jackson. Andrew Jackson saw an honorable hero, and they become unlikely friends. Red Eagle’s noble move protected his people.
- Hero of Rebels
The Rat Pack
Rebels become heroes—the ones who fight the system. The “Rat Pack” consisted of famous Rebels. Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, Sammy Davis Jr., Joey Bishop, and Peter Lawford, among others, were part of the group.
The Rat Pack appeared together on stage many times. Many of these singers got their start at the Copacabana. Here is a 1949 photo of Dean Martin on stage at the famous Copacabana nightclub in New York City. Read more about the Copacabana here in Mr. Copacabana:
No one knows where the name “Rat Pack” came from. Rumor is that Lauren Bacall and Humphrey Bogart lived in a neighborhood called Holmby Hills. The original “Rat Pack” consisted of Humphrey Bogart and other actors. They were sometimes called the Holmby Hills Rat Pack.
The Rat Pack’s first movie together was “Ocean’s Eleven.”
- Hero of Conviction
A hero has conviction. Dennis Prager has a firmly held belief in God and the importance of good people in society.
His opinion is well respected. He has influenced millions of people with the American Radio Talk Show. His lectures, writings, and appearances have helped many people to learn the correct way to live. His eloquence brings calmness to an ever-evolving chaotic world.
Read Dennis Prager’s foreword in Jim Proser’s Savage Messiah: How Dr. Jordan Peterson is Saving Western Civilization here:
Heroes shape our world. They bring light where there is dark. They save people, help others, they fight against injustices. With their generous actions that involve an element of personal risk or sacrifice, they defend the innocent. There are many ways to spot a real-life hero. Heroes do not expect any reward or external gain. Heroes care for people around them, and they see others’ perspectives. They senselessly rush into a dangerous situation. They live by their values and are willing to experience personal harm to protect those values.
People who perform heroic acts are confident. They trust their abilities. They believe they are capable of handling the challenge. Heroes are needed more than ever today.
