Who else wants to:
Ralph Zuranski, a former special feature's writer and photographer for the Coronado Eagle Newspaper, created the In Search Of Heroes™ Program for High School Students in 1992-1993. The entire community of Coronado worked together to help students discover and develop their own heroic potential.
After they believed they could be
heroes, they were matched up with
mentors to help them identify and
interview local heroes. They created
articles, newsletters, websites and
videos to spread the Good News about
neighbors, family members, friends and
community residents who were helping

by Ralph Zuranski How does one
arrive at this exalted position? According to "Big Brain," my
talking "Franklin Language Master," the attributes are the same
for both sexes. Heroes are individuals admired for their
achievements and qualities. They especially demonstrate the
courage to conquer fear or despair. Where are the Heroes of
today, when the world needs them so desperately?

How does one arrive at this exalted position? According to "Big Brain," my talking "Franklin Language Master," the attributes are the same for both sexes. Heroes are individuals admired for their achievements and qualities. They especially demonstrate the courage to conquer fear or despair. Where are the Heroes of today, when the world needs them so desperately?
Are we the audience and the major news media equally responsible for the lack of publicity for Heroes?
Have you ever wondered, "Why is there such a focus on traumatic, violent and frightening events?" Does a steady diet of this material perpetuate fear and despair?
Do we experience a vicarious thrill from the misfortune of others?
Are our senses dulled, ethics corrupted and morals so jaded we require greater quantities of violence and shocking events to stimulate our interest? I still remember when one murder caused social outrage and community activism!
Too many people today are apprehensive, frightened by things beyond the edges of perception.
They are afraid of many things. Riots, wars, terrorist acts and natural catastrophes are increasing in frequency and intensity.
Physical and emotional abuse, chronic diseases, financial failure affect every family to different degrees.
The consequences of unremitting
fear just don't go away by themselves. The quality of life
decreases dramatically when all hope is lost. Something positive
must be done. A solution is to locate and publicize real-life
Heroes in these fearful and perilous times.
The tremendous need for inspiration and positive role models increases exponentially with each horrific act and devastating event.
Experts believe a factor of ten times as much positive stimulus is required to overcome one negative event.
How many people are desirous of reading and seeing uplifting articles about people triumphing over human trials, tribulations and misery?
Are there any real-life Heroes laboring to help solve the immense social and environmental problems facing humanity?
I believe the answer is an emphatic yes! Heroes are everywhere!
They are ordinary people determined to serve and help others; to make the world a better place. Daily, across the face of the earth, people willingly assist family members, friends, and strangers.
They compassionately minister to the injured, poor and sick.
They Help Enthusiastically, Responsibly, Optimistically, Exceptionally and Socially (HEROES), with no fanfare, demand for recognition or public acclaim. These humble people of every race demonstrate the loftiest qualities of humanity.
Hopefully the news media will
publish and broadcast these stories. The goals of the program
will be to: Identify and
praise local Heroes. Educate people
about Heroes and heroic action. Inspire young
people to want to become Heroes. Help young writers
and photographers develop and perfect their writing skills. Receive published
credit for their writing, art and photo contributions.

Extensive research has proven individuals often meet or exceed their own and other's expectations.
When children envision themselves as Heroes, heroic action is not far behind. Public recognition and concrete rewards for excellence are a wonderful incentive for young people. Every person can benefit by creating a Hero or Heroine within, to help them deal with the difficulties of life.
Eleanor Roosevelt once said, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of their dreams."
The creators of the "In Search Of
Heroes Program" have the desire to inspire young children to
dream, to imagine themselves Heroes. These people are working
hard to create vehicles for the dreams of teenagers to become
reality. As in the book "Dune," the dreamers must awaken. People
need to believe they can make their dreams for global peace,
joy, prosperity and love a universal experience. The heroic
example of others is a prerequisite.
"I don't know what your destiny will be, but one thing I know; the only ones among you who will be really happy are those who will have sought and found how to serve." Dr. Albert Schweitzer.
"Small opportunities are often
the beginning of great enterprises." Demosthenes

"Every community locally, nationally and internationally would benefit from the answers to these questions because it really is critical to learn and apply the secrets of how these everyday heroes think and prosper."
One of the primary goals of the program is for students to realize their parents, teachers, neighbors, friends, family members, coaches, spiritual and community service leaders are the real HEROES. These individuals are the unsung HEROES of our world.
They Help Enthusiastically, Responsibly, Optimistically Exceptionally Socially and/or Spiritually. Young people can benefit tremendously when they realize professional athletes, musicians, politicians and movie stars are not the best role models. The real Heroes are the ones that take the time and invest the effort to change one child's life at a time for the better.
"Students have open minds, genius potential, free time and already know how to use computers and surf the internet."
They have the ability to evaluate ideas and information about different people and other cultures without being opinionated and judgmental. The “In Search Of Heroes™" Program provides students with the opportunity to learn the importance and value of:
"The 'In Search Of Heroes™' Program promotes Good News by focusing on positive and uplifting actions and activities."
"Good News," a positive attitude and the everyday hero role models uplift members of every community world-wide. Leaders and those willing to put “service above self” should be identified and organized into an effective community support system. The “In Search Of Heroes" Program provides the perfect opportunity to:
"Local experts are an important part of the 'In Search Of Heroes™' Program."
Local experts who are experts in copywriting, marketing, asset protection, public relations, internet technology and alternative health will teach students the secrets of their success, how to become local leaders and simple ways to stay healthy. Students will:
