Heroes come in many forms

Military service does not imply or guarantee heroism at all. (I think I avoided it in Vietnam.) However, it does provide opportunities to show whether you have such qualities. But many others, such as police, firemen and paramedics are also thrust into these events. Anyone is capable, like an ordinary passing motorist rescuing someone from a burning car. But there is an equal spirit in people who take risks to support what is right instead of taking the easy route. Think of Profiles In Courage. I salute the author, salute all true heroes, and endorse the wisdom of Yoda.
