The Heroes

Who heroes are?
By an historical point of view we used to think they are divinities, warriors or leader with both physical and mental skills too far from the human ones.
In 2016, we can see them in movie productions as demi-gods with their colourful armours , wielding shining shields and very technological weapons, fighting wars for saving the world.
Since we are children, everyone wants to become an hero. But when we grow up this dreams slowly falls down. As a matter of fact we think , as adults do, that heroes doesn’t exist…
But they really exist, even if they haven’t got any supernatural power nor weapons…
What they actually do, is saving every year lots of children thanks to their skills which are used for the poorest , outcast and so on …
If you don’t have enough money, none can help you.
Often this means death.
