Based on the fact that for me a hero is someone that lives it's life improving other people's life always in a good way but also, not being selfish whem making it's own decisions, then, there's no way that someone could be a hero all the time, imagine that!, even in the greek tragedy, the heroes have they glory time and then something bad happens that questions its morality, then after they made a mistake they need to think how to be even better and go back the good track, that's the big deal, we all fail at some point, but a hero will emend that failure and do the things better.
So who's a hero? not somebody who never felt temptation to do something bad, but the one who felt it but prefered to go on the other way. Someone who made a mistake, but realized about it and tryed to not doing it anymore and to correct it. Haven't you felt how difficult it is to accept when you are wrong, but also to face it to others and prove you can do it right?.
I've met a lot of people, they all make at some point mistakes in their lifes, the women that I work with they are not perfect, they sometimes don't take the decisions according to everyones necesity but at the important moment, when they face reality and how they can actually change it, then, they think about everyone, everything, and all of then become the heroes of their story.
And I could go on like that, remebering all the people that I had the opportunity to meet when they were being their heroes, or that I accidentally or in purpose helped them to be their own heroes; I've met a journalist who never sold it's conscience to anyone but to the truth; I've met a priest who do more than pray, he knew how to farm, he knew how to recycle paper, he knew how to do productive projects and he always shared he's knowledge; I've met my aunt, who had more patience that anyone that I've ever met, and she was always right; and of course, I have my mother, who has lived an incredible life, full of challenges and deceptions but she keeps going, and I go next to her.
The point is, to realize what makes you your own hero, what brings us to live and encourages the others to follow the example, and what moment of sadness or just a difficult moment, we try not just to get over it barely, but to do it even better.
