Saludo pays tribute to the Heroes in our daily life

What actually makes a hero? I'd like to say it's the willingness to make a personal sacrifice for the benefit of others.

Serving others while simultaneously serving oneself can be noble, certainly, but a special kind of nobility attaches itself to those who serve others at a cost to themselves. That's the kind of behavior I find heroic.

This definition implies the number of genuine heroes we have is at once smaller and larger than we all think. Smaller, because many of those people held up by the media as heroes, while undoubtedly wonderful in many ways, don't qualify as heroes. Certainly not famous sports figures—even those who quietly provide free game tickets to underprivileged children or volunteer their time and money to charity as numerous pro football players do.

Heroes can be a security guard, a vendor, a street sweeper, a small kid, a beggar on the street. Like most people say, heroes don't have capes, or weapons or armors or superpowers. They only have the heart and the will to help others to the best they can.

If you want to see more of our Pinoy real-life heroes, you should watch Saludo airing in PTV4 every Sunday from 8 - 9 pm. Saludo (Salute) is a tv show produced by Ms. Leonora Sy as part of her advocacy to introduce to the public more of our unsung heroes. The one-hour weekly hero-serye program is a compilation of stories of everyday Filipino heroes, the least-told life stories which could be the inspiration of each and every Filipino.

The actors of the series are our beloved good-looking policemen known as the "GwaPulis."

They are the following :

PO2 Neil Perez
