The meaning of heroism is often misconstrued. We have a tendency to limit the definition of “hero” to one with powers beyond our own, and as a result, we often do not see our own potential for heroism. In reality, heroes walk among us. Heroes are those who, even when afflicted by dire conditions, find ways to make sacrifices for the common good.
