There are countless heroes we encounter on a daily basis. Your heroes might include family members such as your mom or brother, or perhaps a celebrity. Other heroes have come into the spotlight in recent years that continue to deserve as much respect and recognition now as they did during and following September 11, 2001.

Real Heroes

Those who work to protect the rest of us Ė including our way of life, are real heroes. Itís amazing to think that the people we go to school with and see in the grocery store and malls can easily become firefighters, police officers and soldiers ready to die to help someone in need. None of these jobs are easy, despite jokes of donut shops or childrenís book of cat rescues. The jobs require training, skill, and most of all the kind of dedication most of us would have a hard time showing every day.

Firefighters

Firefighters are often the first to arrive on the scene of an accident or bad situation. This was the case on 9/11 and it is still the case today. Many firefighters were killed going upstairs in the twin towers to help others come down, and even today firefighters are still dying to protect us in California as they battle the wildfires that have devastated that area.

Firefighters might rescue the occasional kitten, but they also are trained in rescue, fire safety, and even are specialists in installing the car seats that keep babies safe and sound in the back seat of cars. Some firefighters arenít even out of high school yet. Often, as soon as you turn seventeen or eighteen, you can actually become a volunteer firefighter. If it is something that interests you, I strongly encourage you to research the requirements in your area. We always need more heroes.

Police Officers

If you drive, you might have already had a frustrating or even embarrassing encounter with your local police officer. At the time, you were probably not thinking of him as a hero, but turn on Cops one day to see what these guys really have to deal with. Sure a teenager going fifteen miles over the limit is simple to deal with, but taking out known drug dealers, capturing child pornographers and keeping the rest of us safe while we sit at home stewing over a ticket is no laughing matter.

As far as Iím concerned, if I have no idea how much a cop is doing in my neighborhood, he must be doing a great job. Cops try to prevent problems and solve current ones as quickly as possible. For every wanted poster out there, there are several, if not dozens of bad guys already caught and behind bars without the public even having a clue. Keep up the hard work, boys in blue!

Soldiers

Right now there is a war going on whether you agree with it or not. And soldiers are fighting and dying to protect the lives of now free Iraqis, people of Afghanistan and those of us possibly in danger back home. The United States is certainly not the only one fighting terrorism around the world, and soldiers of all nations and creeds are doing what they can to keep those who are not involved in warfare safe from those who are willing to go to any lengths to take a jab at a perceived enemy.

This, like any other war, has people that support it and people that oppose it. That is not the issue here, however. We all support our troops that are doing their job and their duty to keep us safe. The more angry terrorists we unearth around the world, the fewer that will be able to attack America, Great Britain, or any other targeted country in the world. It is a hard job, a dangerous one, and one that deserves a huge amount of respect.

Nilm. your seriously are messed up. when you get raped, beaten, robbed.. how about you try to deal with that on your own.. with out cops yeah? see how far you get. cops HAVE to deal with that stuff every day they have to show up at people doors and break the news that someones loved ones dies.. there the ones holding those people together while the rest of there lifes fall apart. and beleive me they dont put there lifes at risk every single day because they had a bad childhood.. are you really that oblivious to what cops do? and money.. cops get paid crap. most have to take on second jobs to support there family. so know your crap and get the facts before you run your mouth.

why is it so interesting arguing with what i'm saying....?

i'm never gonna change what i'm saying....and i'll never stop saying what i'm saying...so what's the point?

rustydaisyfluf i have seen, spoke and experienced a lot of things with many cops in my life....and what i'm saying has nothing to do with tv or anything else...it comes from experience....anyways...you and anybody should stop trying to argue with me....i'm just saying what my opinion is...but it semmes as if nobody can handle what i'm saying....so they post s*it telling me to shut up and blah blah....seriously who cares what i think or what you think or anyone else.....everybody has an opinion about something...only some peoples opinions are better than others (like mine). So stop arguing with me....you don't see me posting s*hit about every persons post on here now do ya?

hehe this is kind of amuzing........first of all...when did i mention your fathers name and say that he is a rapist sicko....nope didn't say anything about him....like i've said before i'm not saying that all cops are bad people just most of them....and no i would not call a cop if someone broke into my house, i'm sure i would do a much better job than the pig cops...anyways you can't say that you know more aout whats going on than me....i mean come on you don't know how much i know and have experienced...besides your father is a cop which won't make you the best source....

anyways i can say whatever i want about MusicaChick's friend, and anyone else...

come on cops don't risk their lives for mee....they risk their lives for the money, cash...some spare of change

do you really believe that someone would actually risk their lives to save others for free.....yeah right.....hello reallity calling!

You just called my father and his fellow officers rapists and sickos, and you don't think I should be offended? Quit being so fu*cking stupid. You're saying that if someone was to break in to your hoise and try to kill you, or if your best friend was abducted, you wouldn't call the police? If you're that stupid, you deserve that to happen to you. I've heard more horror stories then you will ever hear in yoour whole life. Like I said, my father is a cop, I think I know a bit more about what's going on then you do.

And how fu*cking DARE you say that MusicaChick's friend could be a rapist? Rapists are fu*cked in the head. There's a lot more to rapists then you will ever know.

Police and soldiers would sacrifice their lives just to protect you, even though you wouldn't blink an eye one of them died. You have some da*mn nerve to sit here and spew out this sh*t.

erhhh... MusicaChick when did i say anything about bush? (though i have loads to say about him) anyways i'm not trying to change anyones opinion or make them believe what i believe, i'm just making ppl aware of s*it like this..mabye ur friend isn't a bad person or mabye he is...you never know...it's always the person you least expect that do s*hitty stuff, you know...you can never know a person a 100%....think about it...a rapist also has friends who have known him for a long time...and they would never thought that he could rape a person...but he did....you may think that your friend or any other person you know will never do horrible stuff but you can never know....

Nilm, You have insulted my best friend, a guy who I consider a brother by saying, and I quote, "i have absolutely zero respect for cops and even less for the military (a.k.a assasin training camp) i'm not saying that all cops or soldiers are bad ppl, but most of them are..and the rest will become bad ppl when they get the opportunity"

How many soldiers or cops do you know? My friend is one of the kindest, sweetest guys I've ever known. You can't make me believe in a million years that the kid I grew up with was raping anyone. Most countries were formed by war, unpleasant as it is, and soldiers and police officers -are- heroes. They -do- protect you. And while you have a right to believe whatever you like, so do I. And you're right about the media, they do exist just to brainwash the public. That's why they've been undermining President Bush and the war the whole time. Say whatever you like about Bush, but the office of President deserves respect.

alabamablonde1 ...i don't know why ur getting so pi**ed off about what i said...it's my opinion and i have the right to have it.. first of all i have never asked for any kind of protection from the cops ( not that they could give me any,anyway) but believe me one of ur fathers fellow police officers is a villain, a thief, a rapist and a murderer... cops are worthless so why should i care about them?...i have absolutely zero respect for cops and even less for the military (a.k.a assasin training camp) i'm not saying that all cops or soldiers are bad ppl, but most of them are..and the rest will become bad ppl when they get the opportunity...there are more than just a few "horror stories" much, much more. and think of all the stories we don't get to hear...the ones that media don't tell us...u know media is designed to manipulate and to lie.. so ppl who feed off of medias lies are brainwashed ppl...not me

Nilm and Metztli, shut the fu*ck up. You both have no

clue what your talking about. If there were no police officers or soldiers, you wouldn't be able to live without fearing for you life every moment. You would be raped and tortured eveytime you stepped outside. Yeah, there have been a handful of nasty cops, but they go to jail for the abuse. My father and his fellow officers risks his life to protect idiot little brats like you every night, show some respect. They dedicate their life to protecting people who don't give a sh*t about them. Same thing with soldiers. My cousin is in the military and would NEVER DREAM of touching an innocent girl. YOU are the one who has been brainwashed. You let a few horror stories influence your opinion of everyone. That's like saying that all women are wh*ores because the handful of p*ornstars or that all parents are abusive because of the few sickos who beat their children. You're making generalazations, and stupid ones at that.

Well I don't agree with the police and the military.there is so much going on that we don't know.like the corrupted pig cops. They rape, kill, abuse+ and nobody finds out 'bout it.And our poor little "hero" soldiers are over in iraq not freeing the people but raping young iraqi girls.killing their family and friends, abusing the people, while people sit at home safe, while a child is being killed by our "heros". And to make it worse.all the propaganda, lies and brainwashing has effected the people to support this. Ask yourselves if this isn't terror, if you're not a terrorist. Sure you don't go and blow up buildings, but supporting murder and rape is to me terror. People should wake up and not listen to the lies they are given everyday. the cops and the military aren't heros. A person that devotes its life to help others, a person who supports human rights, a person who is willing to stand up for a anothers rights.and not expecting anything in return.this is a hero

Stand Up And Fight!

I cant stand officers here they are jerks go after ppl who arent doing nothing and when its gangs or something they get away with it some gangs tried to kill my Dad and they busted a old mans head open and told the old man to go back to his apt. Officers are retarded not heros idc what anyone says they were bullied in school and grow to be cops so they can bully the ones who had bullied them. Everyone knows that. And the war thing.. Iraq kids are blowing ppl up they arent going to change i say bring the soldiers home and drop a bomb on all of iraq there problem solved. Ppl will hate me for it but at least no more Dads and Mom mainly family members arent dying anymore. Common sense folks.

This is a great article. It really points out that the cute little jokes about firefighters climbing a tree to rescue a cat (That's Mr. Incredible's Job!) or Police sitting at a donut shop all day long (Again, not their job. That one's mine. ) it just isn't right!
