What is a hero? Does one have to have superpowers, special abilities or
incredible talent to be considered one? Well, some of us seem to think so.

they are needed most. They should not have to feel guilty about the negative

retain that hero status among them, and possibly gain that status with more
individuals. Being honest is a quality that is never usually overlooked in
naming someone a hero. This includes being honest with one's self. Honesty
with yourself is a very important virtue. It is hard to get through life,
especially ...
