Growing up, we had people we loved. People we wanted to be when we grew up.
We had heroes.
Some of us had them on Saturday Morning Cartoons and - if we were lucky - on our clothes. GI Joe, for example.
Then, all of us, at one time or another, wanted to be either a fireman or a cop.
And some of us - if we were lucky - had a dad, a brother, a relative who we looked up to. As a hero. As a definition of the kind of man we wanted to be when we were that tall, and had facial hair.
Who were your heroes?
