Rise up Heroes and Heroines! The world needs you NOW!
What is a Hero or Heroine? How does one arrive at this exalted position?
“Heroes are individuals admired for their achievements and qualities. They especially demonstrate the courage to conquer fear or despair.” Merriam-Webster Dictionary
Where are the Heroes of today, when the world needs them so desperately?
Are we the audience and the major news media equally responsible for the lack of publicity for Heroes? Have you ever wondered, “Why is there such a focus on traumatic, violent and frightening events?”
Does a steady diet of this material perpetuate fear and despair?
Do we experience a vicarious thrill from the misfortune of others? Are our senses dulled, ethics corrupted and morals so jaded we require greater quantities of violence and shocking events to stimulate our interest? I still remember when one murder caused social outrage and community activism!
Too many people today are apprehensive, frightened by things beyond the edges of perception.
They are afraid of many things. Riots, wars, terrorist acts and natural catastrophes are increasing in frequency and intensity.
Physical and emotional abuse, chronic diseases, financial failure affect every family to different degrees. The consequences of unremitting fear just don’t go away by themselves. The quality of life decreases dramatically when all hope is lost.
Something positive must be done. A solution is to locate and publicize real-life Heroes in these fearful and perilous times.
The tremendous need for inspiration and positive role models increases exponentially with each horrific act and devastating event. Experts believe a factor of ten times as much positive stimulus is required to overcome one negative event.
How many people are desirous of reading and seeing uplifting articles about people triumphing over human trials, tribulations and misery?
Are there any real-life Heroes laboring to help solve the immense social and environmental problems facing humanity?
I believe the answer is an emphatic yes! Heroes are everywhere! They are ordinary people determined to serve and help others; to make the world a better place. Daily, across the face of the earth, people willingly assist family members, friends, and strangers.
They compassionately minister to the injured, poor and sick. They Help Enthusiastically, Responsibly, Optimistically, Exceptionally and Socially and/or Spiritually (HEROES), with no fanfare, demand for recognition or public acclaim. These humble people of every race demonstrate the loftiest qualities of humanity.
Ralph Waldo Emerson once stated, “It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself.”
True unconditional love is helping and serving others without expectation of return. This is heroism at its most intimate and beneficial level.
Mahatma Gandhi said, “Where there is love there is life…”
All societies need Heroes to rise up and be recognized. The light of their actions should be publicized through social media sites.
These extraordinary, ordinary people are an inspiration to others. They are a catalyst for beneficial change in their communities.
The time has come that people must concentrate on the good in each person, rather than the evil that plagues our world.
Children and teenagers desperately need to learn about those who reach out and beneficially touch the lives of others and those less fortunate.
Victor Hugo once shared, “There is one thing stronger than all the armies in the world, and that is an idea whose time has come.”
Ralph Zuranski, former Special Features writer for the “Coronado Eagle Newspaper,” has invested over 20 years searching for local Heroes. He realized that there are many Heroes Categories.
The goal of the “In Search Of Heroes Program” to inspire parents and grandparents to believe they too can be a Hero to their family.
Extensive research shows individuals often meet or exceed their own and other’s expectations. When you believe you too can be a Hero, heroic action is not far behind.
Every person can benefit by creating a Hero or Heroine within, to help them deal with the difficulties of life.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, “The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams.”
Ralph Zuranski believes it is important for parents and grandparents to be Heroes to their kids and grandkids. You must believe you can make your dreams for global peace, joy, prosperity and love a universal experience. Your acting like a Hero helps others believe they can be Heroes also.
“I don’t know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know; the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve.” Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
