JLBC Cadets, Please note that our purpose here is looking at leaders, not heroes. We often try to set up leaders as heroes and assume unobtainable perfection. Heroes aren't perfect; no one is. And we shouldn't expect them to be. And some of these leaders are heroes in some way. But we're just looking at their leadership, how they led others to the goals they wanted to achieve. And we're looking at examples of how the administration can change the world – or at least your little part – and how others' traits, actions, and passions helped them be a leader in their world.
