A soldier goes in first and doesn't think of himself as a hero. A coward hang back with the thought "it's heros who die first".
But the cowards often die first because they are too frightened to see all the dangers around them.

Thank you so much!)
Wheeliebug: imho a hero in general goes first to the field of war - and under "war" please understand all things where help needed or urgent dids - so he is the first to risk his/her life - to die before the others. Everyday people are not coward, but maybe they (we) think a different way, we dont risk ourselves as does a hero. But there are everyday heroes also (I hope), and anyone can be at a special circumstance be a hero.
On the other hand - present day we are in lack of heroes, they became so called "big words" and cinicism ate them up unfortunately. We need heroes whom can be shown to our children as good samples, but the question is - what kind of hero, from where... And so on...)
Sorry for my awfull english, hope you know what and how I mean this.

I do fully understand, but it should be understood that not every one who is injured or worse in a conflict is a hero.
In a crisis there is a lot of confusion and accidents happen frequently. Many soldiers get injured just on excerse before they even go to war.
However, I do understand and respect the heros and those who have fallen victim in a crisis.
I have personal experience of it, I have my medal and a wheelchair.
By the way, it's a good photo.

Respect Wheeliebug! Wish you the best, hope will be better...
I understand your point of view, all I want to express that we need a hero even if they will be forgotten fast or cinicysm degradates them in our harsh world. "To die first" maybe not physically, but by the new generations, by our children if we do not care as much as should.
A "hero" can be like you, surviving and proudly bearing fate what God sued us with. Everyday heroes are around us, but they are nearly invisible altough living maybe next door or next room - next you. Just we should look around a bit more openly, with an accepting heart and mind. Or the existing heroes will really die fast. And allways before us, otherwise we will not recognise their heroism ever...
Hope it is not fully stupid I wrote.
