As we approach President's Day, I got to thinking about heroes. Many folks have grabbed onto a President and proclaimed that prez "my hero". Many others looked at some great and/or historic figures as heroes. Lottsa people claim sports figures or entertainment people are heroes.
What makes a hero? Perhaps exceptional courage and/or strength. Willingness to risk life and limb for a cause. (Does it have to be a "just" cause?)
Only two presidents would even come close to filling the hero bill for this Bear.....Thomas Jefferson and Teddy Roosevelt. (Betcha lots of people would list Ronald Reagan.)
Martin Luther King, Jr. also fits into my hero basket. In fact, in the civil rights arena, there are so many unsung heroes.....the people who stood up against the wrongs of our society, risking their own lives in the process.
I cannot think of a single sports or entertainment figure I would consider a hero.
Do you have any heroes?
