What is a hero?

Most readers have heard about the spree killings at the Trolley Square mall in Salt Lake City. You may not have heard that the the killer was taken down by an off-duty policeman from my current home of Ogden, Utah. He is rightly being hailed as a hero, because if he had not acted, the odds are good that the fatalities would have been higher.

In light of this, I submit, for your consideration, this definition of a hero. A hero is the right man, in the right place, at the right time, who is willing to do the right thing.
