This entry is part 1 of 3 in the series Looking for Heroes

Maybe you're like me, and find yourself searching for a Hero.

When Harrison Ford played the part of President on "Air Force One", I
commented that I wished our real president was like him (Clinton was president
at that time).

When I was a child, I thought John F. Kennedy was a great president. Then he
was replaced in my mind with Abraham Lincoln, who has remained my favorite President
almost ever since.

What makes a Hero? And why do we need them? And a nagging question for me,
is why are we sometimes so willing to settle for such pathetic examples of Heroes?
