    What do you believe a Hero is?

    Describe a real person that is the closest to a hero to you. For me is my wife! (Mother of 4 boys, physicist, always in action, always loving and smiling!)

    Nice example. I take it that you are doing your part. smile Each soul is interconnected and actually God Itself.

    Words have always had a dictionary meaning and a 'spirit' meaning. Heroes and heroines are people who have large Hearts, selfless attitudes and generally make sacrifices for the greater good. So for example, we speak of a Joan of Arc; a Queen Boudica or Ajuna, Achilles or Hercules ... a Robin Hood, Martin Luther King, Mandela or Washington. Lincoln ... Gandhi ...

    Jet Li was called a hero. He said that he wasn't, but that he knew a famous herbalist who for many years had tried all his formulas on himself, before offering them to others, at the risk of his own life. This man, to him, was a hero. So here's another thing. Each one has his own hero. I liked Mohammed Ali and Jesse Owens for the same reasons, none of which related to their sport.

    In his movie called 'hero' Jet Li had to take down a King, supposedly for the greater good. But when the chance came, he realised his mistake and sacrificed himself, for what was best.

    Therein lies the key to any hero. Selfless sacrifice for the greater good, guided by an indomitable Higher Will and Love for others. Scriptures are full of these people. I don't need to name them, I don't think.

    Very happy for you. I trust I can be very happy for your family also. Higher blessings.

      The feeling is mutual. We are all servants of a Higher Cause - the Life-Tree and it's branches. Om Shanti! Shalom! Salaam! God's Peace or Glory be!!

    This may sound a bit cynical, but for me there are no heroes (other than the fictional ones). All of us, we are just doing the best we can. I used to have my personal heroes in life... It was a joyful period but it lacked of realism. And most of all, I understood how much pressure this can cause to someone. How much unbearable weight this adds to someone's shoulders, to be seen as a hero. But in other words, you can say that this also means that now I see every single one person on this planet as a hero. Literally EVERY SINGLE ONE.
