Heroes (By: Gerald Roberts)

Too few characters like that, flying around like that saving ole fools like me. Lord know people like me need a hero. Courageous, self sacrificing people setting examples for all of us. Everybody loves a hero.
People line up for them, cheer them, scream their name. Years later an adoring fan will tell how they stood in the rain or cold for hours just to get a glimpse of (or be with) the one who inspired them to hold on a second longer
I believe there is a hero in all of us...perhaps right besides us that keeps us honest, strong and noble and finally allows to live and die with pride...and that much more of a resolve to want to remember and live and learn and grow and perhaps even one day...heal, so much so that I don't if I didn't have her...erm I mean have my hero or even the memories of my hero looking over my shoulder and watching my back.
