Love to know what her definition of a hero is. Like those in the series of the same name, or perhaps Lance Armstrong (a lot of people admire sportsmen). Personally, I take someone like Aaron Ralston any day. To survive a week in desert without water or food with your arm pinned by a boulder, then cut it off and walk to help - that's heroism.
Me too.Yes, your example is courageous (though I don't know about heroic - don't have you have to help someone else to be a hero?). But can you aspire to be that? That's an example of doing something courageous under pressure - and you can't aspire to be in that situation, surely. (I'm directing that at my American, not you, btw)I find the idea of aspiring to be heroic very strange. You can aspire to be courageous, but aspiring to be a hero seems to me to smack of self-importance. It means you aspire to do somethng courageous and then be lionised for it. She's seeing book deals, payments from A Current Affair for her story, etc.
