Some think others are born heroes. 

Some others think heroes are made. 

Others don’t believe heroes exist. 

Whatever school of thought you belong to, it doesn’t change the fact that some people, male and female alike have altered the course of history by staunchly standing for the things they believed in. 

I’m continually inspired by the lives of such men as Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther King who fought for the freedom of others even if it meant losing theirs. 

And there are certain men like Chaz B who lent their voices and resources to save a people falling apart. 

Others like Myles Munroe travelled the world and brought solutions to the problems of nations and institutions. 

And there were amazing women like Mother Teresa who was kind and gave to others unreservedly.

There were also phenomenal women like Funmilayo Ransom Kuti who fought for the right of women to vote. 

Throughout history, we see people do remarkable things for others. Too many to even mention. 

All these I consider to be true heroes. 

The most beautiful thing about these heroes is that they were ordinary people who gave themselves up to the dreams and visions that possessed them. 

Thus they continue to teach us the power of vision. 

No matter who you are, you can make your desired change.

The whole world doesn’t even have to know you. 

What’s truly important is making a difference right where you are and leaving your footprints on the sands of time. Because that’s what heroes do.

  1. Nice piece as usual Jules, I love this one short and sharp.
    You know I read somewhere that the opposite of bravery isn’t fear but CONFORMITY; Heroes are people who refuse to conform. No wonder the scriptures say… Do not conform…
