Modern-Day Heroes

It’s true that the term “hero” is vastly overused today…  But I just read an article about a petite 15-year-old girl who deserves the honor.  Read here about how this young hero leapt into action and saved 25 horses from a horrendous death by burning.  She was unable to save every horse in the stable – but the fact that she put her life in jeopardy to save 25 – returning time and again to the burning stable – speaks volumes about her character.  I imagine her mother is proud of her and furious with her at the same time – this is an emotional paradox with which most mothers and many fathers are familiar.
