The citizens of this country, as well as our friends around the world, truly do stand united.
Heroism has been redefined, our core values have resurfaced and a new sense of local and national community has emerged.
You won't find most American heroes walking through the pages of history books or atop huge monuments. Their names don't generally make the headlines or the 6 o'clock news. A true hero is simply someone who makes a differencelarge or smallin the lives of others.
