Hero gets overused

July 25, 2013 

I'm sorry but I feel the word "hero" is being used too loosely. When I was younger, a hero was one who put his life in danger to save someone else. Most of the heroes we hear about today are at the most good people doing what most everyone should do : help each other. That's my opinion.
