I keep staring at this day's question. I have never really thought about my heroes but my heroes I guess would be the men/women that risk their lives for us in a variety of different professions. But they haven't let me down yet.
My parents, aunts & uncles are hero like in that they taught me what I think of relationships and families. They are still happily married - and haven't let me down.
So who has let me down? Well, SI did. But he wasn't a hero by any means. Who else? Well, some friends let me down over the last 28 years or so...but again they weren't my hero.
I guess my answer will have to be that this has not yet applied to me. Perhaps when it does, I will write about it. Sorry Folks.
