Zuranski, a former special feature's writer and photographer for
the Coronado Eagle Newspaper, created the In Search Of Heroes™
Program for High School Students in 1992-1993" The entire community
of Coronado worked together to help students discover and develop
their own heroic potential. After they believed they could be
heroes, they were matched up with mentors to help them identify and
interview local heroes. They created articles, newsletters, websites
and videos to spread the Good News about neighbors, family members,
friends and community residents who were helping others.
What is a Hero or Heroine?
How does one arrive at this exalted position? According to "Big Brain," my talking "Franklin Language Master," the attributes are the same for both sexes. Heroes are individuals admired for their achievements and qualities. They especially demonstrate the courage to conquer fear or despair. Where are the Heroes of today, when the world needs them so desperately?
Are we the audience and the major news media equally responsible for the lack of publicity for Heroes?
Have you ever wondered, "Why is there such a focus on traumatic, violent and frightening events?" Does a steady diet of this material perpetuate fear and despair?
Do we experience a vicarious thrill from the misfortune of others?
Are our senses dulled, ethics corrupted and morals so jaded we require greater quantities of violence and shocking events to stimulate our interest?
I still remember when one murder caused social outrage and community activism!
Too many people today are apprehensive, frightened by things beyond the edges of perception.
They are afraid of many things. Riots, wars, terrorist acts and natural catastrophes are increasing in frequency and intensity.
Physical and emotional abuse, chronic diseases, financial failure affect every family to different degrees.
The consequences of unremitting fear just don't go away by themselves. The quality of life decreases dramatically when all hope is lost. Something positive must be done. A solution is to locate and publicize real-life Heroes in these fearful and perilous times.
The tremendous need for inspiration and positive role models increases exponentially with each horrific act and devastating event.
Experts believe a factor of ten times as much positive stimulus is required to overcome one negative event.
How many people are desirous of reading and seeing uplifting articles about people triumphing over human trials, tribulations and misery?
Are there any real-life Heroes laboring to help solve the immense social and environmental problems facing humanity?
I believe the answer is an emphatic yes! Heroes are everywhere!
They are ordinary people determined to serve and help others; to make the world a better place. Daily, across the face of the earth, people willingly assist family members, friends, and strangers.
They compassionately minister to the injured, poor and sick.
They Help Enthusiastically, Responsibly, Optimistically, Exceptionally and Socially (HEROES), with no fanfare, demand for recognition or public acclaim. These humble people of every race demonstrate the loftiest qualities of humanity.
Hopefully the news media will publish and broadcast these stories. The goals of the program will be to:
Identify and praise local Heroes.
Educate people about Heroes and heroic action.
Inspire young people to want to become Heroes.
Help young writers and photographers develop and perfect their writing skills.
Receive published credit for their writing, art and photo contributions.
Extensive research has proven individuals often meet or exceed their own and other's expectations.
When children envision themselves as Heroes, heroic action is not far behind. Public recognition and concrete rewards for excellence are a wonderful incentive for young people. Every person can benefit by creating a Hero or Heroine within, to help them deal with the difficulties of life.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
The creators of the "In Search Of Heroes Program" have the desire to inspire young children to dream, to imagine themselves Heroes. These people are working hard to create vehicles for the dreams of teenagers to become reality. As in the book "Dune," the dreamers must awaken. People need to believe they can make their dreams for global peace, joy, prosperity and love a universal experience. The heroic example of others is a prerequisite.
