A hero deliberately and courageously overcomes obstacles for the benefit of others without regard to personal consequences. Conquered obstacles are the only qualifying credentials of heroes and a
measure of one’s true leadership.
Heroes are people who have shed their tears and sweat for the common good and benefit of the society and some lose their lives while defending or satisfying others.
Heroes are people that should be celebrated, honoured many times over and cared for after their active years because most of them often forget to get a life for themselves or build their own lives while working for the benefit of others but in most cases it is the other way round.
Today Nigeria has many heroes; such as war veterans, ex civil servants who can be called heroes for their sacrifices, patriotic ex sportsmen who wrote Nigeria’s name in Gold at major internation competitions, many of which are either being owed their retirement benefits or someone somewhere has syphoned their money and they mostly die of hunger and illness because to Nigeria they are as useful as their last assignment, manu of our tru heroes die lonely because of lack of care and support from the nation they shed their blood and sweat for whereas those that neither shed blood nor sweat are living big while those who deserve it aren’t getting the care they deserve.
The life of a Nigerian hero is a sad life that ends when active service to Nigeria ends.
Rest In Peace to All Our Dead Heroes.
