What Are Some Of Your Favorite Stories About Heroes?

Oh, how I love stories about “heroes”!

They’re SO inspiring. Whether it’s somebody who knows their stance is going to cost them – and they do it anyway (e.g. like Christian and other martyrs around the world). Or somebody who takes a bold but widely unpopular view — believing that what they’re espousing is right and righteous – at work, in school, with friends and family, or in their community. Or somebody who says “this is wrong” – when the easy and riskless way is to just be quiet.

So often we equate heroism with somebody running into a burning building, or rescuing somebody. But you don’t have to be a fireman, policeman, soldier, or superhero to be heroic. We are and can be heroes by the choices we make. Especially when the cost or danger is significant.

That’s why I’ve written a historical fiction book called “By the Light of the Silvery Moon.”

It’s a compilation of actual, historical events that happened at night, under the light of the moon – with some fictional stories attached. Think of the movie Titanic – the event was real, but the story of Jack and Rose was fiction.

This book was written for young adults – people who especially need heroes growing up (more than pro athletes, pop stars, and celebrities). It is designed to provide a great discussion guide – for school and home school students. “What would you have done in that situation? Was he/she a hero, and if so, why? What values are important in this story?”

It’s a book that young adults (10-14 years old) should really enjoy! Look for a publication date in the near future.

Good reading!
