What does the word "hero" mean to you?

The dictionary defines it as "a person noted for courageous acts or nobility of character" or "a mythological or legenda...ry figure often of divine descent endowed with great strength or ability".

I like the more honest definition: "one who shows great courage". It takes courage to stand up when the odds are against you and things look impossible.

Heroes don't have to save the world; all that matters is that they choose to make a difference, even just for one person.
