Strength presents itself through us in many different ways.  We can show our strength in physical ways, for instance by running long distances, lifting heavy weights, or swimming across a lake.  We can show our strength mentally by winning a chess game or getting a doctoral degree.  We can show our strength emotionally by advocating for ourselves, being calm through a crisis, or comforting those in need.  And, we can be strong spiritually, by having faith, wishing for all beings to be happy and through love.  Someone who possess all of these strengths outwardly may appear to be a hero, yet heroes walk amongst us all the time.  You are a hero.  I am a hero.  Because all of us, whether we realize it or not, possess all of these strengths.  There may be times in our lives when one overshadows another, but all our strengths lie within us.  Sometimes in an instant one or more will appear when they are needed, and we surprise ourselves by our fortitude.  In these moments, we see our inner hero, and we know that it is always there to assist us when we are ready.
