Hero saves baby from plunging to death from hotel roof

Saving the life of a baby has to be one of the biggest acts of heroism possible, and this is exactly what happened in Oxford, England during Friday evening. A man happened to be walking along the street when noticing a 2 year old baby standing on the top of a hotel in Iffley, Oxfordshore.(…)

Why Jason Collins is a hero for stating his sexuality

Why Jason Collins is a hero for stating his sexuality

When a sports idol such as Jason Collins comes out and admits his sexuality to the world it really is a heroic act. Like it or not, the act of “coming out” leaves you open to criticism and scepticism from a huge number of people. Unfortunately that”s the world we live in today – despite(…)

A hero in a hospital

A hero in a hospital

Sometimes to me the word hero can get used far too often, labelling people who although are obviously talented individuals and successful, but yet lack the status of the word hero. When a word like this gets used too much, it can start to lose its meaning. To me, the people who deserve to be(…)

A footballing hero

A footballing hero

Coming from a middle-aged man who’s literally obsessed with football – watching, playing, living and breathing the game, 24 hours every day, it might not come a as a surprise to hear that my hero has to be Zinedine Zidane. The legendary French midfielder epitomises how the game should be played in my eyes. Watching(…)

My mama is a hero

My mama is a hero

If I had to nominate someone for a hero award (if such a title was to ever exist) then probably the first person that comes into my head would be my mama. She’s always bubbly, always funny and chatty, and most importantly always positive. She’s probably (I may be slightly bias, she is my mama(…)

My boyfriend is one of my heroes

My boyfriend is one of my heroes

I know it sounds cheesy or whatever, but this is the truth. During our relationship he has taught me a lot of things, not to mention how supportive he has been. Nathan is the one who has taught me snowboarding tricks, but he has also taught me more valuable lessons like being more responsible or(…)

A special group of people

A special group of people

During my life I have had so many heroes. Starting with my beloved parents, my two sisters and my brother, my grandparents and all my teachers, all of them have participated at my formation as a real educated person. With all these, there are also a bunch of heroes I have to mention. They are(…)
