I have to laugh lately at the use of the word "HERO", what a joke! This word has been flung around like a dirty diaper. "HERO" was held back for the chosen few. Now every Tom, **** and Harry is a "HERO".

People, they are a least "SURVIVIORS" at most. They knew that the mine they were working in was unsafe and chose to go in it anyway. PLEASE their 15 minutes of fame are up. PLEASE STOP ALREADY...

Definition of the word "HERO": A person of distinguished courage or ability, admired for his/her brave deeds and noble qualities.

Chilian miners (FAIL)

Just Keepin' it real!!!
