Heroes are easier to admire than define. The quality of a hero is their tendency to think of others before thinking of themselves.
Heroes do the right thing at the right time, unaware of the impact their actions may have.
Heroes are seldom conscious of their moments of heroism, and many may not recognize their acts as heroic.
It can be heroic to do what needs to be done and to do it right.
Whether raising a family, volunteering, teaching others, sacrificing your wants for someone else’s needs, etc., these are all acts of heroism.
