Wondering What Makes a Hero

What do you think makes a hero? I know it isn’t what is portrayed by most “hero” action movies. A person can become a hero in all manner of ways. Some only act like a hero once in their life; let us say by saving someone. Some have lived a hero’s life in a manner of ways. There are all types of heroes out there and have been for as long as people learned to live together.

This Sunday morning I want to talk about one in particular. I am going to give you a couple of links to sites on the web that can tell the story better than I can. Here is one that I think tells it like it was. He became a hero when he overcame his injuries and dedicated his life to helping others. Click Here

This fellow’s name is Dave Roever. I had known about him but had forgotten his name. Yesterday, I found an envelope that I had the name “Dave Roever” written across one end. This morning, my curiosity got the better of me and I searched the internet for him. I had no trouble finding a lot of links to him. Search for yourself, but here is another link that tells a little more: Click Here

Like I said before, there are a lot of internet sites about him. Let me know which ones you like the best and I will take a look.

Have a bright Sunday.


  1. Dave Roever has a fantastic personal testimony. I first heard of him about 25 years ago. Thanks for the memory :-)


  2. Thanks Old Geezer for stopping by. I had written his name down a long time ago and at my age, I seem to forget things, like who he was. So, had to refresh my memory.

    I read your blog every day, You do a great job.
