“Heroes are not unlike you and me. They are ordinary people who make the extraordinary decision to stand up, against the odds, and fight for what they believe in and the people they love. The heroes of this book, like so many others throughout history, not only dared to dream up a better world, but also took action to find out what it would take to live in it.”
