Glenn Beck, television personality and radio host, political commentator, author, television network producer,and filmmaker, explains his personal, unique definition of a hero. While showing what he perceives as evil, he explains the concept of the “Righteous of the Nations”, an honor given to those non-Jews who risked their lives to stand up against evil and save the lives of Jewish people during World War II.
Beck believes that these “ordinary people” should be our models. They are people we need to learn about and to emmulate because they exemplify what is good and right in the world in the face of terrible crimes against humanity. They risked their lives so that the world could become a better, more humane place.
We, can all do our share, to fight evil and promote decency, goodness, compassion, and responsibility for upholding these values in the face of those who threaten them with terror and violence.
We should start as soon as possible.
