Real Life Heroes

This is only a small sampling of the inspirational stories about real life heroes.  People who stick up for what they believe in and face the consequences bravely.  Others who just by living their lives set a brave and heroic example for the rest of us to follow.  I highly recommend that you read all of the books listed below and share them with the children in your life.
