Hello everyone,
I am new to the blogging and forum world! So I would like to know who you believe we can consider a true hero? We often associate this term with war heroes, but it is so much more. 
So let me know who you would add to the list.
I am doing this because I make videos about these true hero (http://youtube.com/c/TrueHeroChannel).
Good luck!
Andre D.

"Those who know, do not say, those who say do not know."

But, seriously, I think heroes are ordinary individuals who under remarkable and, in some fashion, dangerous circumstances (not necessarily physical danger), excel in ability and courage in responding to those circumstances.
One example is that guy who landed the plane on the river in NY.  He was the right person for the job, and because of his ability and his calm, something that could have a disaster (due to a bird strike and freezing cold water), could have gone terribly wrong.  I don't know his name, but he does commentary on plane accidents for one of the US television stations.
I heard a story about people who save someone from a burning car, and suffer 2nd and 3rd degree burns because of it.  They literally favored these people's lives over saving their own skin.  They didn't do it for fame or fortune, but because at one moment someone was going to die if they didn't do anything.

In many cases where an emergency prompts someone to risk their life for others they often cite a sense of action on impulse. In those cases maybe adrenaline has something to do with not thinking but taking action. You could also run away on impulse so courage is required.

People can also risk life and limb on a near daily basis or deny the needs of their own self, such as parents living on crackers and water in order to provide some proper food for their children.

This altruism is seen in the headlines and in the lives of people considered insignificant or ineffectual in terms of power. The true hero possesses and acts on altruistic impulses and beliefs.
Keeping in mind-

"Those who know, do not say, those who say do not know."
The root of all desires is the one desire: to come home, to be at peace. -Jean Klein

I think it seems to the outsider that a hero has a choice in the matter, but as far as the hero is concerned, they had no choice because who they are.
John McCann the Vietnam POW could have had himself released any time he wanted.  His father was an admiral and so the Vietnamese would have loved to release him and thus embarrass the admiral and the US government with propaganda that admiral's son's get special treatment.  I don't know if they tortured him any more or less than any other POW, but they did torture him and try to break him, crippling him in the process.
Some might not like his politics, but as a soldier he did an amazing and courageous thing in surviving.
He had a very interesting endorsement for his campaign, his jailer at the Hanoi Hilton endorsed him.
