For a long time I have pondered on the question who is a real hero. It was clear to me that neither the propaganda of the past nor the hypocritical commentaries of modern medias were able to offer a satisfaying definition. Then I read about a Bundeswehr pilot in the sixties who had refused to open his ejection seat of a notorious "Starfighter" plane which would have meant to let it drop over a city. He died leaving his family whith a mortifying pension. Two days ago a Munich businessman was killed in bright daylight trying to protect some youths from two violent juvenile robbers at a mass transit station. Despite of all public tribute his wife will live in poverty. My feeling is that real heroes are no tools for state propaganda but rather an embarrassment for the treating of their families. Let me wish the best to Ramon's family!
