Hero: A person admired for his/her achievements and noble qualities; one that shows great courage.
Most people know a hero by this definition. Maybe it’s your neighbor or co-worker who went above and beyond the call of duty in a time of need, a young person who volunteers their time helping others, or someone who saved a life. Each year, American Red Cross and the surrounding communities come together to honor heroes who have changed the lives of those around them.
