Why is "hero" a word so often reserved for warriors who fight with guns and weapons to defend their people?

Renowned picture-book biographer Jonah Winter writes of another kind of hero, a peaceful hero, who is willing to die for a cause, but never to kill for a cause. From the ultimate hero, Jesus of Nazareth, to Sojourner Truth and the ordinary man who lives in Rwanda, Paul Rusesabagina, Jonah Winter brings children a series of remarkable stories about the bravest people history has known, illustrated by a brand-new talent, Sean Addy.
