    It’s disheartening to continually find out that your heroes and role models have feet of clay.

    The real heroes of our lives should be (as they were in my own youth) the adventurers and explorers of mankind, the great thinkers and inventors of mankind, the great engineers and especially all of those middle class working people (like my own father) that built the world we know and depend upon for our very existence. Finally, (but certainly not the least) our fantastic and brave astronaut/explorers building the infrastructure of the future of mankind.

    I am sorry for our current generations, but in general, sports figures (with a few exceptions like John Wooden) and entertainment figures do not make good role models, let alone heroes!

    I agree; mine were the astronauts, like John Glenn, as well as Jacques Yves Cousteau. Men who made a lasting impression, even in this day & age.

    Historical figures become heroes when history is good to them. Where our founding fathers did heroic deeds, many had their faults.
    One of the great minds of Science, Math and even Religion was Isaac Newton. Now that Guy had an ego the size of Jupiter. He was definitely the north end of a south bound mule.
    For my money, My heroes are Mom and dad. They had their flaws but I knew that up front.
    The same is true for my Religious heroes. Yep they were dysfunctional, Moses had a temper, David was a Murderer/adulterer, Elijiah was bipolar and Peter was impulsive. But I realize that if the Creator can do great things, there is still hope for me.
    (Before the athiestists and agnostics comment, please remember, I do respect your right to be wrong in my eyes, please respect my right to be wrong in your eyes.)

    One of my heroes was my 10th grade Biology teacher. A survivor of Japanese prison camps, he still had a reverence and respect for life, combined with natural scientific curiosity.

    I think it’s ok to look to more modern people as role models, but the people who make the best role models generally shun media attention.
