“Show me a hero, and I’ll write you a tragedy.” ~F. Scott Fitzgerald

We often wonder why we see others standing taller than the rest.   We see him gathering people around him who would otherwise not give each other the time of day.  At the end of the day he just being himself, there is no grand speech, no rallying cry, no common goal, but his very presence is what people come to follow.  But what makes them great is not because of the deeds they done, even though that’s part of popular belief; but it is in fact what their views are, and the tragedies that they had, have or having now that makes them who they are.  Their ability to endure and move forward is what draws others to do the same.  Next time you have a chance to, meet someone you adore as a hero, or someone you regard highly of, ask them their story.  Ask them what they been through that made them who they are.
