Webster’s New World Dictionary defines a hero as “any person, admired for courage, nobility, etc.” In the thousands of words of the English language, hero stands out as one of the most used and misused words. A person can be tagged a hero, they can be labeled a hero and they can be called a hero. Some may seem to be a hero for actions they have not yet accomplished, when some have already become heroes and do not know it.
We live in a country that has been involved in war since its existence and will continue to be involved because this is what we, as keepers and believers of freedom, do. It will never change and as long as we are involved, we will continue to produce heroes.
Make no mistake war will certainly make heroes, but war is not the only way to become a hero. Everyday life produces heroes just as well.
Are heroes made or do they just become one?
