    I have only 5 heros in life.

    Father
    Stepfather
    Moms Dad
    Fathers Dad
    Stepfathers Dad

    Thats it. If you have millions or billions of dollars so what if you are some historical figure so what I don't care you didn't do crap for me. The men listed above made me the man I am today.

    Never under stood all the famous people being heros. To me Heros are the people who directly affected your life and made you the man or women you are today.
