What or who do you think of when you think of a hero?
I could be sappy and say...my husband. He's not military, but he's working smack in the middle of a war zone. Why? So his family can have a better future. Not necessarily better in material things because the money is so good, but better...easier. One of the only things we've fought about in our marriage...is money and how to pay bills at the end of a pay period...buy groceries when you're bank account is almost at a zero balance. How to put gas in the truck just to get to work. Do you know there are people having to pawn televisions and wedding rings to put gas in their cars...while the oil companies post record, billion dollar profits? So many families are just one paycheck from being homeless. So, for my husband to want to be away from his family, friends and home and work in a war torn country...he's my hero.
