I think the definition of “hero” has to include the word “sacrifice” -- but more than the sacrifice of time or energy; the sacrifice of your life for the lives of others.

That’s what makes firefighters and policemen heroes. They sacrifice their own lives to protect others. That’s what makes our military heroes. They sacrifice their lives in the pursuit of peace. That’s what makes fathers true heroes to their children. They sacrifice their lives to provide for their families. And if you’re a father AND have defended your country? You’re a double-hero in my book.

Happy Veteran’s Day, dad.
