Tonight we are going to watch the very public collapse of someone many called a hero. This person will go on a talk show and confess to cheating. How much of a confession at this point we can only speculate.
The media, this ex-hero’s handlers, and sponsors helped to build the image to a mythic status. As a few people suspected he was nothing but a false idol all along.
Last night I saw the video of two brothers, Conner and Cayden Long. Conner is 9 years old and races triathlons with his younger brother Cayden who has cerebral palsy. Watch the video and perhaps it will reshape your definition of what a hero should be.
