People aren‚??t ‚??flawed‚?? the perception is. The struggling person that gets up everyday dresses and goes to a job that offers no mental stimulation, for what? So they can feed their families. That is a true hero. Others may perform a heroic act, but it is a one time event often over glamorized. The perception needs to honor those that make it through each day making a positive contribution, even if its only to take care of the ones they love.
