America is a nation of "heroes." There are tens of thousands of them. Television news readers and commentators often refer to all military personnel, law enforcement officers, and firefighters as heroes. There are, of course, true war heroes, brave cops, and heroic firefighters. But all of them? If everybody is a hero, then no one is. In the fields of education, literature, science, business, law, and medicine, there are real heroes, but we seldom hear of them. I guess there are even political heroes, but at the moment, I can't think of any.
