The Foundation for Economic Education is pleased to present a weekly feature every Friday by our president, Lawrence W. Reed, commencing on April 24, 2015. The series is expected to run for approximately a year. Each week, Mr. Reed will briefly relate the stories of people whose choices and actions make them heroes.
The people Reed will write about will not be the well-known, usual suspects. Often they will be men and women you never heard of, from the distant past to the present day. In every case, they will be individuals who deserve notice and appreciation.
