If you were to write your autobiography would it be thriller or a comedy? If you were the center of your own story, would not every hurt and every wrong would paint you as the victim? Who would be the supporting cast? What role would they play: encourager, enabler, persecutor? In the climactic finale, who would be the hero?
The truth is, if it were up to us we'd be the heroes of our own story. After all, the story is all about us, right?
But we've come to learn the story isn't really all about us, is it? So then, who's the hero?
The world is in need of a hero. Is it the hero to save us? The hero that is ordinary? The hero of the day? Or is it the hero who was famous for nothing?
(I forgot how much I love that Metallica video. It shows just how desperate the world is for a hero.)
