hero wins peace prize

(Here I am catching up on blog postings. Note I've given up on nprlistener blog to put politics into unjam)

Quite some time ago I heard public laments that people, especially the young, have no true heros any more. Since then, I've tried to keep a mental list of those I can call heros. A few months ago, I heard a Marketplace profile on Muhammad Yunus, who invented micro-credit. I forgot his name, but kept him on my heroes list as "the guy who invented microlending". Then last month I awoke to the pleasant news that one of my heroes had won the Nobel Peace Prize.

Who goes on your heroes list?
