I read all the post and all the comments, so please forgive that I will not make a comment following the discussion. I just wanted to say that in real life I consider my parents to be heroes. They have never saved a life or ran to a house in flames but every day I saw how they acted correctly and bravely against all adversity.
For sure, my dad was no saint, he made mistakes, he got us in a lot of trouble, but he never gave up and fought to gives us a good life until his last breath (literally). My mom is remarkably strong and correct, I have always witnessed her do god for all people.
In real life, I consider that heroism is less "flashy" and more about having a big heart even in dark times.
Not gonna lie, many of us become cynical and corrupt as we grow up and realize how the world works, That's why appreciate small gestures of righteous and moral behavior.
In my humble opinion, we overlook many heroes in the everyday life. Or maybe I just have lower standards in real life than in fiction. I understand 100% if people don't consider what I'm mentioning as heroism. I do because they inspired me to be a better person and fight for what I believe.
