These heroes are people who were placed in situations whereby they were called upon to excel to the point of heroic stages in their work. They range in all types of backgrounds and occupations. A common trait is they
gave of themselves to the point they made a significant difference to someone in our society in one way or another. Often envied for their personalities, they were able to reach out and influence those
who might be characterized as just "ordinary" people. Most people can be classified as ordinary because they tend to overlook things they do that are admired by others.
There are many individuals who come from ordinary backgrounds and often prove to be unexpected heroes. Many who we call heroes when they actually save a life say they only did what
anyone would do. That may be the case but somehow a spark goes off telling them to take action, and they do.
