One of the blogs I follow has recently been posting these 30 Days of Truth writing prompts. (See list here: ) I thought, what a great idea!

A hero that has let you down

I can honestly say that I have no actual heroes. See, my parents, with all their faults, told me not to look up to celebrities, etc. I was always told that they were ‘normal’ people who makes mistakes. That was probably the only REAL thing they taught me.

I do respect and admire several people. Most of which, even if I listed them here, you wouldnt have a clue as to who they were. (but that isnt what this post is supposed to be about)

BUT I have been let down by people of all kinds. The only kicker is that they cant be described as a hero of mine.
