I'm back with the 30 Days of Truth. Sorry for the delay but I had a computer problem that prevented me from getting online.

30 Days of Truth - Day 14 - A Hero That Has Let You Down

Ok, this is another one I really had to think about. When I think of who would qualify as my “hero” my dad and my husband come to mind. They are my only two “heroes”. If this question is asking for a person whom I admire…well, that’s different.

I’m going with that. The first one that comes to mind would be Tiger Woods. I did, no, I still do admire him for this golfing ability. As an individual he has fallen off that celebrity pedestal I had him perched on. I have to say I was truly taken aback when his, uh, “activities” were made public. To me he was such a gentleman, a true man of character. He seemed above reproach. He was a superstar! People of all backgrounds and ages, around the world, looked up to this young man. He had so much going for him, a beautiful wife, adorable children, a stream of income with no end in sight, endorsements out the ying-yang and youngsters all over the land that wanted to grow up and be just like him. A true role model. Or so we thought. And then….it was done. He wasn’t the superstar anymore. He wasn’t the gentleman I thought he was. The beautiful wife and children are gone, the endorsements have been dropped, (some, not all) and his golf game suffered. And for what? Because he couldn’t keep it in his pants? Oh please! I hope she they were worth it Tiger because they cost you dearly. Yes, I’ll still watch you play golf on TV only from now on instead of watching with admiration I’ll be watching with pity. You had it all and you let not only your family and yourself down, you let us down too.

This is the “hero” that let me down.

I've been thinking and I just don't think this question applies. A hero who lets you down... Is that possible of a true hero? How can a Hero let you down? Many of those of 9-11 were heroes. Many in wars throughout the centuries were heroes. Many in daily life, struggling to make a living, to make a difference in our world...working toward raising decent God-fearing children are heroes.
I don't think I have any heroes that have let me down, nor that I think would let me down.

I have friends and family and people, with qualities I admire. Some far more than others.

But no one is perfect, and so one should not be surprised when someone they love and admire messes up occasionally.


That's sort of what we all do. We are all Heroes in our own way!!

My father was wonderful, but my mother will always be my hero!

There was no one like her, except my grandmother, her mother, and I miss them both.

been waiting for this thread to start up again why who knows because everyone is so much better at answering these questions than I am...all of your answers were so on the mark...I am not sure if I have thought of any one person as being my hero....and then to fall from graces??? don't think so....we have those in our lifes that disappoint us but as Joella said they are only human and those things happen ... you said pretty much that didn't you Joella?

If there is anyone out there guilty of this I'm not pulling it up...

none of my heros let me down. disappointed perhaps, until I got old enough to realize that no one is perfect and we all try, some just more than others.

I agree along the lines with Joella. I don't count sports/movie stars/politicians or most people in the news as heros.


Sometimes, the only right answer is silence...which in and of itself speaks a thousand words.
