Heroes are people who overcome evil by doing good at great personal risk….

Unfortunately our modern definition of “hero” has been stretched to include all manner of people who do not warrant the title.  The athlete who just set a new sports record isn’t a hero.  Nor is the “daring” movie star or even the adventurer out to be the first solo climber to scale Mt. Everest.  They may be brave – but they don’t meet the definition of a hero for whatever they achieve benefits only “self”.

Real heroes are selfless.
