It's an aspect of chivalry, I was merely using it as an example. Zosimov always delivers thought provoking threads... I always like them.
Anyways within the mental gymnastics I guess I was alluding to what may make heroes in other people's mind's, one of my personal hero's was Johnny
Cash, I'll get back to that in a minute.
In this life I think ultimately the only person you have to come to like is yourself, it's you that you'll have to live with 24/7 from day one till
the day you're gone, for me that memory I shared was something I never liked, I have others too that are similar and at the end of the day I won't be
freezing next time, I guess that's selfish in a non selfish way but hey, I have to live with my conscious.
As I said I consider the man in black (Johnny Cash) as one of my heroes, he did a lot for other people but then again he stole a lot of songs, in his
mind he was no hero... For a lot of his life he was looking for redemption, I think his own hero played a huge part in him finding some peace. I'm
still unsure if he ever came to like himself though, his last few albums reflected a lot from his own abyss. The darkness within.
What is a hero?
