Real Heroes Don't Always Get A Chance...

...to see the outcome of their heroics. Unlike the so called heroes of the athletic sports world, they do not always get the chance to sign balls at the end of the game. As opposed to actors who live in the land of make believe nor do they get to sign autographed photographs of themselves or win Oscars for their heroic roles. The truth is that real heroes are heroes because they have done something above and beyond what others would do and in doing so they put their lives at great peril. Some of them live through it but others sometimes do not.

Take for instance Dwayne Johnson of Colorado. He is a hero but sadly he never got to find out about the results of his heroism. You see, he was killed in an avalanche along with 3 other family members including his wife and two of their children. So what did he do that was heroic. Well, he grabbed his 13 year old daughter and shielded her body with his own. She survived. See:

That was heroic - hitting home runs, or playing a role in a movie is not.

All the best,
Glenn B
