What’s a hero? ©
- A hero doesn’t necessarily need to be photographed or written about in the newspapers.
- A hero doesn’t need to be interviewed on TV or be recorded for posterity.
- A heroic act doesn’t need to be measured by other people’s subjective interpretations.
- A hero doesn’t necessarily need to make a big noise, or expect huge applause, or endless gratitude.
- A hero can do something heroic, something momentous, something that will save lives – yet no-one will know what he did, or what it took to do it. Or at most, a handful will know.
- A hero is someone who does something heroic quietly, away from public eyes, away from public scrutiny.
- A hero is someone who does something selfless, instantly, as a given. And either seldom talks about it, or downplays it, or never discusses it.
That’s a hero. The one who does something, and then carries on with his life as a regular human being, knowing that he has touched a few lives anyway. If thanked along the way, that’s very special and always appreciated.
