That saying is so wrong that it aches. The reality is that only the reckless dye young (by their own actions or by the reckless situation that they are pushed or allowed into).
One other thing that I was thinking as I read the thread is how often the word Hero is abused, utilized to characterize people that just do their damn job of function, in this case and not many few (in context to the use of the word) are the exceptions that should reflect the meaning of heroic action.
