Be inspired by the stories of these heroes who are, for the most part, unknown to our generation - common people who stood firm in the face of tyranny and gave their lives for others to right the wrongs of social injustice.
Congressman Ryun provides a wealth of stories of quiet historical heroes who have, for the most part, been ignored by popular culture and nearly lost in the mist of the past.
Heroes Among Us
I am reading this to my kids and it is awesome! It is so refreshing (even for girls) to read about real life heros who sacrifice for the good! Thank you for writing this book! I can't wait until I can read it to my young son (now 3 and attention span of a flea)...my 3 daughters are attentive and interested! They will search for men with these characteristics!
