Everyday heroes

Heroes are supposed to be noted for their courage, but who are everyday heroes? Are they the rock stars and movie stars who usually think of their fans, but also think of themselves constantly? Is that courage? Perhaps a sports celebrity is looked at as a hero simply because they can run and jump and catch, throw and bat a ball out of the stratosphere. Sports stars sometimes care as they spread their wealth to many charities, but are they real heroes? Politicians seem to never reach the mantle or title of a hero unless they are very exceptional and do great things without their ego getting in the way. Soldiers are always heroes as they volunteer for their country, spill their blood and sometimes get killed because they care.
