Righteous Heroes

URL: http://www.jewishjournal.com/opinion/article/righteous_heroes_20070629

What never fails to amaze me is that there were one, or 36, or tens of thousands of the just and righteous, who stood solitarily against the terror, who defied the cautious "wisdom" of their fellow citizens. Let us reserve the once honorable word "hero" for such men and women, even though, ironically, they may be the first to reject the honor.
