Will you be today?

What makes some a hero? Today is a regular holiday here in the Philippines, National Heroes Day(fourth Monday of August). Who are our heroes? In the Philippine history, we got a lot. Those who fight for our freedom, for our independence. From bolos to our Jose Rizal's pen, fought against three colonizers-- Spaniards, Americans and Japanese. The country also considers the Overseas workers as the new heroes, who sacrificed a lot, being away from their family just to provide for them. What makes someone a hero for you? Is that person should be like those who have fought, or chosen to sacrifice their lives--those that thinks more of the others more than themselves, the selfless ones. And...will you be a hero to someone else today? “Every society needs heroes. And every society has them. The reason we don't often see them is because we don't bother to look."-- Susilo Bambang Yudhoyono
