A hero might be someone like Dave Sanderson, who helped all the other passengers off of US Airways Flight 1549 before exiting the plane, or it might be someone like the Rev. Richard Joyner, pastor of Conetoe Chapel Missionary Baptist Church, both of whom were at the 2014 Frederick E. Turnage Chapter of the American Red Cross Heroes for the American Red Cross Banquet.

What?

What was his heroic action? I must have missed something. No disrespect intended. Weren't there others being honored at the meeting for heroism? Why were they not mentioned? It is my understanding that at least two of the honorees helped to save a life or protect a downed police officer. Aren't these acts actually more heroic? Certainly the Rev. has done a wonderful community service but hero?
