Dan P. Morrison: How Ordinary a Hero Can Be | Huffington Post

huffington post logo

You see, I have a problem with heros. Or more accurate, I have a problem with what we make of our heros. We make them larger than life. We put them on a pedestal. We treat them different. And therefore think they are different than us mere mortals. And that is crap. Heros are not extraordinary; they do extraordinary things...

It's simple. And extraordinary. They are all examples to my son, myself and you that yes, mere mortals can do the extraordinary. And more importantly, heros don't belong on pedestals, but need to be right here on the ground among you and me getting the job done.
