What does heroic mean to you? Do you think of daring acts of bravery? Strong leadership? Triumph over great odds? Outstanding achievements in sports or entertainment? (continued on next slide)
Heroism takes many forms, including these. There are as many ways to be heroic as there are individual lives.

You probably know several people that have been heroes in your community or even in your own life.
