Defining a Hero

What's up y'all, I'm Tomeka Jones, the new Associate Producer for CNN Student News.

Let's talk about heroes!

The word hero can be defined in many different ways. My definition of a hero is someone putting their life on the line or going above and beyond the call of duty for someone else.  Just like the story in Tuesday's show about the 17-year-old in Oklahoma who saved his neighbor from a pit bull attack.  That was brave!  So what's your definition of a hero?  And do you know someone you feel is one?  If so, here's your chance to give them a shoutout.
