What Heroes Are

“Lawrence Rubin, a psychology professor at St. Thomas University in Miami, posited that rather than focus on our fascination with fallen heroes, “we should turn attention from them to ourselves, and search for real and tangible ways to be heroic in our own lives.”

“Heroes are part of both popular and the broader culture as well.” They “are the rarefied and purified elements of the best of humanity,” Rubin says. They are “the distilled essence of our hopes, dreams, strength and desire for immortality.”
