In Search Of Heroes Program Searches For Internet Heroes At The 2002 Big Seminar

Laura Neale was one of the first Heroes in training, a winner of the Good Guys Comic Book contest and a victim of a hit and run drunk driver. Her back was horribly broken and the doctors did not know if she would ever walk again. Her sister Sarah’s elbow was crushed in the accident.

As a further challenge to the family, their home was only 5 miles from the epicenter of the Northridge earthquake. Cindy and Ted Neale were very traumatized by all the catastrophe’s hitting their family in a such a short period of time. As Ted, Cindy, Laura and Sarah tell about their traumatic experiences, you begin to realize: the inherent value of each family member, the importance of the love of a mom and dad and the Heroic Potential of each person.

Why Every Community Can Benefit From a Local “In Search Of Heroes Program.

3. How do people become Heroes?
4. Who do you feel are the real-life Heroes in our society today that are not getting the recognition and rewards they deserve?

Everyone benefits when these questions are answered by students, teachers and parents.
