We sometimes think of childhood heroes as a vestige of yesteryear. In the hustle and bustle of our lives, it’s nice to take a moment to see who moves us. Heroes had such a useful purpose historically but, do we take the time to identify our own heroes/role models? What about letting them inspire us, motivate us, or teach us today? It’s nice to take a look back at the year to see who was a rock star in real life and what we can learn from them.
The Top ten heroes according to Time Magazine:

They are not just the typical sports stars who can easily fall from grace. They all demonstrated a moment of brilliance. I think they are all around us from the person who cuts the grass for an elderly neighbor to the person who volunteers to help the homeless. Why not take a moment to find out someone’s story. They may be closer than you think.
