Who is your Everyday Hero?

By this I mean, a person who you see frequently as part of your life, work, school, etc.

Any age. Could be your neighbor, colleague, friend, family, someone you see in your neighborhood.

(Rather than a public figure, famous personality, etc living or not)

.. and share with us "Why?"

Closing Statement from Dave Lim

It's wonderful to see all the tributes and recognition you have be giving your everyday heroes.

Many people cited heroes based on their disposition towards life and those who give of themselves to others, especially parents and grandparents.

As food for thought, and to share, here are some definitions of heroes:

    Nov 2 2011: Very nice question,

    Well, first of all I always say that no one wants to be a hero, it just turns out to be like that.

    Being a soldier in the IDF, I know what it's like to defend something you care about or protect your ideology.
    My hero is "Emanuel Moreno", an officer that served "Sayeret Matkal" (equals to Navy seals/Delta Force), being an amazing man like he was made me act like him and believe what he believed. Being a person / human bin comes before everything ! before orders / money / hate and etc ..

    Wlell , that's just me .

    Dennis :)
