** Graeme Taylor. When his teacher threw two students out of his Ann Arbor, Michigan classroom -- one for wearing a Confederate flag, the other for bashing gays -- he was suspended without pay. Graeme responded by speaking out at the school board meeting, urging them to reinstate the teacher and give him his pay. Graeme is openly gay and ''fourteen years old''. [[http://nymag.com/daily/intel/2010/11/fourteen_year-old_michigan_stu.html He is clearly destined to become a]] MemeticBadass. You can agree or disagree with the teacher's actions, but man, awesome speech.

* [[http://www.metro.co.uk/news/882067-absolute-hero-pilot-made-safe-landing-after-mid-air-brain-aneurysm The pilot]] of a cargo plane in South Africa suffered a brain haemorrhage mid-flight. Despite being paralysed down the whole left side of his body, he maintained communication with his wife and ground control, informed them that he wasn't well, and then ''landed the plane perfectly'' with no one else on the plane to help him. Sadly, he died in hospital the next day. So... a DyingMomentOfAwesome, then? (salutes)

* A Website/DeviantArt user was talking to his girlfriend, and asked her if she still loved him after some trouble. Another guy came in and started making fun of him. His response? "Get. The fuck. Off. My profile. And. The site." The troll has yet to respond.



* Firefighting. This is a career where you are willingly diving into other people's burning buildings, save their lives and whatever they can, ''and then do it again the next day if need be.'' This is a career that, by its nature, requires a human to utterly rewire their fight or flight response in order to just do their jobs, in order to save complete strangers for no reward. If your child says "I want to be a hero", tell her to be, not a police officer or a soldier, but a firefighter.
