What makes someone a hero?
Is it fame, power, money, creative talent, athletic ability, good looks?
Despite what our culture typically celebrates, none of those things makes a hero.
No, heroism springs from character, the critical element that defines a person. The good news is that character is something every one of us can mold; it is simply the sum of the choices we make as we face new challenges and opportunities.
