Some are born to save the world. Most of us just dream about it.

What makes a hero?

Is a hero someone who puts on a mask and costume and rushes to the rescue? Is a hero someone who lands a crippled airplane? Is a hero someone who finds a cure to a wasting disease? Is a hero someone who uses their supernatural powers to help others? Is a hero someone who loves another person so much they put their needs ahead of their own? Is a hero someone who stops in the hustle and bustle of life just to listen to those who no longer have a voice?

Heroes comes in all shapes, sizes, and personas.

And that it what this short story collection is about. Seven stories that explore heroes and heroic activities.
