Types of Heroes

A Hero is someone who has achieved or experienced something beyond the range of the ordinary, often through self-sacrifice, that is bigger than themselves.

The hero isn’t someone who has hit six hundred home runs in his lifetime.  The hero is someone who has given his life for a cause or for others.
