These questions will help guide you as you look at your story and share it with us:
- Who is your hero? Why?
- When were you a hero? How?
- How has this program made a difference for you?
- What advice do you have for others?
So, what is a hero?
While there are many interpretations of the word, we have adopted the following definition:
Heroes are people who transform compassion (a personal virtue) into heroic action (a civic virtue). In doing so, they put their best selves forward in service to humanity. A hero is as an individual or a network of people that take action on behalf of others in need, or in defense of integrity or a moral cause.
Heroic action is:
Engaged in voluntarily;
Conducted in service to one or more people or the community as a whole;
Involving a risk to physical comfort, social stature, or quality of life; and
Initiated without the expectation of material gain.
In the coming weeks we’ll be featuring some of your Every|Day Hero stories on our blog to empower others.
