asey We can be heroes just for one day...
I always wanted to be a comic book hero, created by dots of color and yet I am able to put the imagery in people's minds that I can save the world and get the girl.

Jess a person who loves you, who you look up to. a person that does no wrong in your eyes. a person that is willing to risk their life for your happiness, even if it means emptying their pockets just so you can have a new shirt. i don't know about anybody else, but my hero is definately my parents! thanx Mom & Dad! Love, Jess 020305

xavier real heroes cannot shoot lazers from their eyes or swing effortlessly from building top to building top.

real heroes can flip their eyelids
real heroes can belch the alphabet
real heroes can jig
real heroes can make paper cranes at a rate of ten per minute

we have the potential... be a heroe, no matter how you do it. Be A Hero.

Insat If I make you my hero, you have got to have the knowledge and the wisdom I can look up to ... so lets just stay friends. 030202

HairThief A hero is a wonderfull thing to have. It gives you something to aim for, a goal to be reached. Those that don't have heros surely see themselves as perfect and none of us are that, are we? 030202
...
Insat You question your status in life, are you then claiming to be perfect? 030202
...
minnesota_chris I think never questioning your status is a major flaw... 030202

Insat Thank you. I have now questioned myself and so ensured I don't have that flaw. :) 030202

punkrockchick17 what's a hero? somebody who does something great, maybe. but then again, why is there a hero of war. what did they do great? yes defend our country, but they KILLED ppl. and that makes the become a hero. this is paradox. 030418

epitome of incomprehensibility (Dons serious hat.) I guess it's done to restore some meaning to a violent death. On a rational level, there's nothing either heroic or shameful about being a victim of something, but our social dichotomy of winners/losers codes being unfortunate as being a "loser." So the hero label is a way to restore the balance.

And, I gather, to draw support for war by the Harper factions, if we're talking about the shooting in Ottawa. Gah. Isn't that exactly what these petty terrorists want? Provoking people to fight? ...I used to try to annoy my brother so that he'd scratch me and then complain about it. Be the better person. Be a hero and turn the other middle finger. (Some expression of anger seems appropriate. Then, move on.)

past "Well done good soldier, well done" the priest intoned. Hollow words for standing and being shot. Discourses swirl together: if a soldier is killed in the line of duty, how can that be terrorism? What is it that the man did except die, violently? The place he fell is inscribed with meaning, and, indeed, meaning that many of the veterans of the war the monument was first built for decried in their own time. A senseless death in that spot reverberates with the words of the shattered men and broken families that entered war seeking imperial glory and left it wishing to be made whole again or rotting in death soaked European fields. It's political to point out the politics being employed to turn a passive victim into a hero, and our decency is letting the narrative be lost. Who died for Canadian freedom? What war was fought for responsible government and franchise? The rebellions of 1836 and 1837. The First Nations and Métis resistance of 1869/1870 and 1885. That other conflicts so divorced from the goals of democracy get cloaked in the words of freedom here, in this place and in this time (and here, in this place at other times of imperial adventure for more than a century), should be offensive. We have never been innocent, so innocence has not been recently lost. But we get heroes to be worshiped rather than victims to be mourned. We get more war instead of more support for the vulnerable. We are becoming a lesser society, and we see our degeneration as exhalation. 141029
