Who says our heroes have to be real people, when is the last time a real person did anything truly selfless? something completely altruistic? or for a reason so pure and innocent as the pursuit of adventure or fun? When is the last time one of us had a screwed up day but still tried to make someone else smile? My hero’s are fictional Harry Dresden, The X-men and Gregory House, and a few other antiheroes that come to mind.
Why because they are better men that I will ever be and have ever met, and from all possible forecasts will ever meet. They are better men that I am woman. Just because of the utter lack of ulterior motive.
Who are your heroes? Why? Am I insane to think that way?
