All this talk about worshiping comic-book super heroes is either pointless or has one good side-effect: it makes me want to focus on real heroes. Like, say, Harvey Milk – born exactly 83 years ago, on 22 May 1930. Or Aristides de Sousa Mendes, who saved more lives in just a few months than most of us in our whole life and at the risk of his own.
Honestly people. If modern hero worship is what you’re going for, at least go for the real thing. Real, life-threatened, life-saving, world-changing, world-challenging kind of heroes. Or read Galina Krasskova’s blog post on the topic.
