Modern Day Heroes
Looking back on real life heroes, like my own father in his life working among brutal gangsters, it is easier to see the heroic action in hindsight. Also, our polarized politics makes one person’s hero into another person’s villain. It can, and does, get complicated quickly. This is often because we see the man, but fail to see the hero within.
Modern day heroes can also be harder to spot because they can go from hero to zero with their next decision. That is why it is worth examining what seems a small decision to some. True heroes are often created and destroyed the next moment where the conflict is greatest. Heroism exists in large and small actions.
Consider the book below for your further reading in modern political courage.
In real life heroes, common sense is one of the qualities that is often missed. It is this ability to maintain composure under threat that often reveals a hero within. The video below reveals a real life hero under extreme threat, and even certain of his impending death. Yet, he continues his heroic mission undaunted. Note: this is a full length documentary. I recommend you review it after reading this article.
