The Daily Post: Heroes?

April 9, 2011

Daily Post

“No one is a hero for simply doing their job which they are trained for and which they freely choose to do.”

I saw this posted the other day on a social media site and it immediatley floored me. Then I got to thinking and several things came up:

1. Do hereos even want to be looked upon as heroes?

2. What about fathers? I think they are the greatest heroes in the world.

3. What is hero worship and is it a bad thing?

4. Why are people thought of differently posthumous (ie. war heroes)?

5. Why are athletes looked upon as heroes?

What are your thoughts on this?
