Our Heroes

I have always wondered why we as a people like to learn the hard way and worship and praise people after they have been removed, sacked, humiliated or even died.

Life is full of irony; It takes sadness to know happiness, noise to appreciate silence, and absence to value presence.

When i look at many of our heroes i am saddened to see that even whilst they live society often waits for years before eulogising about their greatness!
