Daily Prompt: Heroic

When you were five years old, who was your hero? What do you think of that person today?

I would say that when I was 5, my hero was probably my father. He worked a lot & I didn’t see him much because of his schedule (2nd/3rd shift). He was in the military back then.

Over the years my trust in heroes… well, let’s just say heroes are all but non-existent. Don’t get me wrong, Firefighters, Police, First Responders and sometimes an Average Joe do heroic things. It’s just that I was let down–hard–by my biggest hero and I’ve learned to no longer put people on a pedestal.
