Good point.Bigshadow said:Lastly, I would like to add that I don't mean that only certain kids *can* be heros, because anyone can be a hero under the right circumstances. Just, there are people who naturally inclined to be that way. Not everyone has the desire or heart to be a Police Officer, Fireman, Soldier, etc.
I think that fiction, as Joseph Campbell said in "The Power of Myth", is essential to a healthy childhood - or adulthood. Some will become inspired, others will just join a MA fad temporarily then go onto the next one.
However, I don't think that only Police Officers, Firemen, Soldiers, etc. are heroes. The woman who raises four law-abiding children of good character alone (husband took off and doesn't pay child support) is a hero too. Not that you wouldn't agree with that, just thought I'd add it.
