But who are our real heroes? I was given a little quiz recently. See how well you do:
- Name the five wealthiest people in the world.
- Name five Olympic gold medalists.
- Name the last five winners of your national beauty contest.
- Name ten people who have won the Nobel or Pulitzer Prize.
- Name the last half-dozen Academy Award winners for best actor and actress.
- Name the last decade’s national or world champions in your favorite sport.
Now try another quiz:
- List a few teachers who aided your journey through school.
- Name three friends who have helped you through a difficult time.
- Name five people who have taught you something worthwhile.
- Think of a few people who have made you feel appreciated and special.
- Think of five people you enjoy spending time with.
- Name half a dozen heroes whose stories have inspired you.
Let’s remember and thank our real heroes. And don’t be surprised if someone thanks you.
